Two minor siblings have been missing in Bandra East for last three days after they left home without informing their mother. The police’s search in the vicinity, however, has been unsuccessful so far.
The missing children — Rihan (7) and Zoya (4) — were last seen at their home in Sant Naneshwar Nagar at 10 am on Friday, the police said. Their mother Salma Ansari looked all over the locality for the children, but when they did not return for two days, she approached the police.
A case of kidnapping has been registered with Kherwadi police station. Multiple police teams have been looking for the children since Sunday.
“We have spoken to all the family members of the complainant and also inquired with their neighbours and friends. But no one recalls where the children went,” said Sujata Patil, Senior Inspector, Kherwadi police station. Salma does not suspect anyone to be responsible for the disappearance of the children, Patil added.
