The girl from a village under Nagram police station area on the outskirts of the state capital, who had come to her maternal grandparents' home, suddenly disappeared with some jewellery and money.

Her mother, a widow, dialled 'UP 112' and expressed her suspicion about the involvement of a youth in the disappearance of her daughter. After failing to trace the girl, the police team advised the woman to lodge a complaint with the police station concerned.
