Child rescued safely, accused nabbed within 24 hrs

Sleuths from the Detection Squad and police officials of the Crime Branch from CSMT railway police station arrested a 40-year-old woman for kidnapping a toddler, marking a closure to the case within 24 hours of the child's disappearance.

The accused Parvatidevi Vishwakarma, a Nallasopara resident, on the night of the child's abduction, had come to the railway station with the intention of kidnapping a child and arrived there with a thorough plan. On November 4, the mother Vimal Satdive (35), a housewife, in her complaint, told the police that she was to board a train to her village in Aurangabad and was waiting for her husband to arrive at the station. However, she fell asleep around midnight, only to later discover that her 2-year-old son Sunny was missing. The mother and the child were both asleep, but the child was woken up and taken away from the waiting hall of the station.

She approached the CSMT railway police and registered a complainant. The cops immediately swung into action and launched a hunt to locate the child. When they analysed the CCTV footage, they saw a woman picking up the kid and walking away, before boarding a train. Through information received, it was established that she was on her way to Nallasopara.

Several teams were formed, which began tracking the accused woman. The footage at Nallasopara station too showed her getting off and taking an auto-rickshaw (around 1.08 am on November 5), which was identified by the police. The auto-rickshaw driver Manoj Srivastava guided them to the point where he had dropped off the two people.

Managing to finally reach Tulinj in Nallasopara, where Vishwakarma lives, details of her whereabouts were sought from people of the locality, who identified her through photographs. The people however, confirmed that there was a child in her house that was not seen before and had arrived all of a sudden.

“The lady, who was arrested, was married for 20 years and did not bear any children of her own, because of which she regularly had fights with her husband. In order to avoid arousing suspicion, she even told others in the neighbourhood that she adopted the child through a NGO. In fact, her husband even yelled at her, asking why she stole someone else's child. The case was cracked within a day and the child, who is in good shape, was not harmed at all. She took Sunny only to raise him like her own child. We are investigating more into this,” said Purushottam Karad, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Western Railway).

Vishwakarma has been remanded to police custody and was booked under Section 363 (Punishment for kidnapping) of the Indian Penal Code.
