HYDERABAD: The parents of the 14-year-old city girl, who went missing 40 days ago and was traced to Mumbai, were in for a rude shock when they reached the Port city to bring her back. The minor, who had left home allegedly due to parental pressure for studies, reportedly refused to return home.
The name of the teenager is being withheld as according to law she is now a minor in need of care and attention in the wake of her refusal to go with parents.

Reports have also emerged that the girl has told the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) in Mumbai (Dadar) that she is not the biological child of her parents and is scared to go with them. On receiving confirmation from the Bhoiwada police, the Tukaramgate police alerted Bachupally police, who further communicated with the girl’s parents. A sub-inspector from Bachupally accompanied the girl’s parents to Bal Sudhar Griha at Dadar on Monday.

“The girl, upon learning that she would be sent back to Hyderabad along with her parents, reportedly told CWC there that she would not go with them as they are not her biological parents,” said sources.
Meanwhile, speaking to Express, Madhapur DCP P Viswa Prasad said: “It is not correct that they are not her biological parents. The girl is not interested to come back and stay with them but the child welfare officials have counselled her and she has agreed to come to Hyderabad, but wanted to live separate.” The DCP said the girl is not interested to stay with her parents for some reasons. A team of women police have been sent to Mumbai who would meet the CWC officials and bring the girl back, he added.
“The girl went to Shirdi from Hyderabad on the same day when she left home. She stayed for around a month in an ashram there. During her stay, she managed to get access to internet by taking mobile phone of a shopkeeper in Shirdi to search about rescue homes in Mumbai. It is still a wonder that how could the girl travel alone and stay for such a long time,” said the DCP.

Was in touch with actor on Instagram?

The teenager was not much interested in studies, which could also be a reason why she left home, said sources. She was active on social media, especially Instagram and was reportedly in contact with a person, supposedly an actor.However, a fine day she suddenly left home and appeared in Mumbai. A senior officer in Cyberabad said they are probing whether she was lured or willingly left home.
