GUNTUR : The police have not achieved any major breakthrough in the girl’s abduction case despite setting up five special teams to trace her.  

Kolluru Likhita (13) was allegedly abducted by S Nageswara Rao, an auto driver, at Bhattiprolu on April 21. She is studying eighth class at the government school at Ilavaram, while staying with her grandmother at Bhattiprolu. Her sister Kavitha is also with them.  

Her parents K Veera Swamy and Naga Padma are living in Kollur. Soon after the abduction of Likhita, Veera Swamy who is a construction worker, lodged a complaint with Bhattiprolu police. When the girl’s parents met Andhra Pradesh Women’s Commission Chairperson Nannapaneni Rajakumari, she took them to Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who directed the police to speed up the probe in the abduction case. 

Nageswara Rao, a BSF jawan who worked in Assam, Mizoram and Delhi, was dismissed from service for dereliction of duty. He is said to have developed an illicit relationship with a school teacher of Bhattiprolu. After the abduction of the minor girl, his mobile phone was switched off. 

Even if police teams were sent to Delhi, Assam, Mizoram, Hyderabad, Warangal, Vijayawada and other places, no information about the whereabouts of the girl and the abductor was obtained. Guntur Range IG N Sanjay and Guntur Rural SP K Narayan Naik who reviewed the progress of girl’s abduction case, released posters containing photographs of the girl and the auto driver urging people to alert police if they found them anywhere.

Bapatla DSP M Mahesh said the police could not obtain any clue in the case. However, he said concerted efforts are being made to trace the girl. Cyber team DSP K Gunasekhar exuded confidence that they would achieve a breakthrough in the case soon as they are using advanced technology to trace her.
