PARADIP: A minor girl, who was abducted from New Delhi, was on Wednesday rescued by Delhi police with the help of their Naugaon counterparts from Bhatana village under Naugaon police limits.

 Police said Ashok Jena (21) of Bhatana village was working as supervisor in a company in Delhi and had been a tenant of  one Dinabandhu Soni of Dharampuri area under Khyala police limits in West Delhi. During his stay, he fell in love with Soni’s 15-year-old daughter Puja. Jena and Soni eloped in November. Puja’s father lodged an FIR at Khyala police station.

 A team of Khyala police led by Sub- Inspector Hansraj reached Paradip with her family members but Jena had fled to Bargarh by then. Finding no way out, Puja’s parents convinced Jena over phone that they were ready to marry their daughter to him and wanted his family’s cooperation. Jena returned with the girl to Bhatana village on Tuesday evening. On Wednesday Naugaon police led by Sub-Inspector Susant Satpathy raided his house and rescued the girl. Jena, however, managed to escape.

 Meanwhile, the girl, who is three months pregnant, has been handed over to her parents.
