Speaking to Express, the girl’s parents, Madhukiran and Padmini, said that on August 24, she went to school but did not return home in the evening. “We checked with the school and found that she did not attend classes. We then approached Sriramapura police and filed a missing person’s complaint,” they explained.
Her parents said that she had taken a pair of clothes and `610. When she left for school in the morning, she told her mother Padmini that she was carrying extra clothes as she had drama practice.
