Thanks to the chaos created by the mother and the grandmother, the neighbors woke up and captured the man before he could run away.
Though the neighbors handed over the kidnapper to the police, it is still unclear why he was trying to kidnap the child. As per sources, senior police officer Ramandeep Singh said,
“The accused is nearly 40 years old. He first came near the home to check if the family was fast asleep. He then came back with his cart to kidnap the child. The mother woke up and the man was caught by locals.”
With the ever-increasing kidnapping threats lurking over our kids in our country, it is pretty obvious why the mother and grandmother of the 4-year-old reacted the way they did.
Even last month, a 3-year-old girl was snatched from her mother’s side at a railway station in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. This incident was also caught on CCTV cameras.
But sadly for this child, her mother could not save her.
The men were later found and identified using the CCTV footage.
As a parent, we are applauding the courage of this mother. But this incident makes us ask ourselves what is wrong with our society that not only women but also babies and kids are not spared by the molesters or kidnappers?
Do let us know what as parents, we can do to make this society a safer place for our children. You can share your thoughts here.
