The latest case from Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar area where a young girl who is a first-year student at Delhi University lied to her father fearing his wrath after he video called her to know her location.
She tied herself and sent a fake video to his father on Whatsapp pretending to be kidnapped by a few men. The father, who panicked after receiving the video, took the help of the police. After spending a night at a friend’s place, the girl returned to her home the next day and told everyone that she escaped at night when her kidnappers were sleeping.
The police tried to dig the story which made the girl confess that she had faked her kidnapping to escape the harsh words of her strict father who would have scolded her badly for bunking her college.
A case was registered under IPC section 365 (kidnapping) and the girl’s phone was put on technical surveillance.
Vijayanta Arya, DCP (North West), said, “Teams were formed to look for her. On Monday, her parents received a call from a passerby in Old Delhi’s Ballimaran that their daughter was crying on the street. She had asked the man to call them. Later she couldn’t point out the location and said that at night when the men slept off, she escaped. When she was poked a bit more, she confessed that she had made up the story,”
The girl left her home in Adarsh Nagar to attend classes at the north campus of Delhi University. However, she bunked the classes and went out with her friends to Purana Qila, which is situated near Pragati Maidan.
During the college hours, when her father made her a call, she lied being at the university. This made her father make a video call to her. It was then that she freaked out and one thing led to another.
