CHENNAI: Government Railway Police (GRP) has announced suitable reward for anyone providing credible information about four-year-old boy, Sridhar, who went missing from Chennai Central railway station on May 3.

GRP has created a Facebook page (Help us to Find Sridhar) to spread the message through social media. The railway police has prepared slides containing the photograph of the child as well as the woman in a red saree, who was captured on CCTVs as she took him into a suburban train. The slides contain contact numbers (helpline:1512 and Whatsapp: 99625-00500) on which anybody who has information about Sridhar may contact.

Speaking to Express, GRP SP S Vijaykumar said they are working in co-ordination with Gudur, Nellore and Gummidipoondi local police to trace the boy. “We have intimated local children rescue homes, tea shops, etc, about the boy as well as the suspect,” he said. Railway officials have also been asked to keep a watch for the boy at railway stations, as a few days after he went missing someone had reportedly spotted him in Gummidipoondi.

Sridhar, a native of Tuticorin, had come to Chennai with his parents and two siblings for spending holidays at a relative’s home in Old Washermenpet. He went missing from Chennai Central suburban station around 8:30 am on May 3.
