I request the State government to do the needful to locate my daughter as soon as possible,” said the aggrieved mother who has been constantly alleging police laxity in the case and had approached the district child protection officer in November.Contacted, Jajpur SDPO Narayan Chandra Barik said police are doing their best to locate the minor girl.
