HYDERABAD: An eight-month-old baby boy was kidnapped from Lalaguda railway station here on Friday morning. The incident came to light when the boy’s mother was seen crying by the morning walkers, who then alerted the local police through Dial 100.

Secunderabad Railway police rushed to the spot and launched a hunt. The kidnapper is identified as Ghouse and reportedly known to the victim Eshwar’s parents. According to railway police, Eshwar’s parents Miraj and Srikanth were residing on the railway platform and eked out a living through rag picking. Three months ago Ghouse, who is also a rag picker, joined them and all three of them were staying together on the platform.
