Man detained for abducting child and cheating on clothing store owner


Indore (Madhya Pradesh): A man who abducted a child from the Chandan Nagar area and fled with clothes worth thousands of rupees from a clothing store after leaving the child there, was arrested by police on Sunday. The accused confessed to deceiving other traders in the same way.

According to Sadar Bazar police station staff, the owner of Shabana Lohar store in Marathi Mohalla had filed a complaint on January 9 that an unidentified man had left his 7-year-old child in the store and fled with clothes worth several thousand rupees. Shabana told police that the accused left the store saying he was coming just after showing the clothes to his wife. He told the store owner to take care of his child. She waited over an hour but the accused did not return. She then went to the police station and lodged a complaint when the child told her that the man who had fled with the clothes was not her father.

Police said they learned the child had disappeared from Dhar Road. His parents were contacted by the police and the child was safely released to his parents. The child’s parents informed the police that the child disappeared from their home around 3 p.m. on January 9 and that family members were looking for him in the surrounding area.
