After failing to trace her they went to the Industrial Area police station to inquire about her sister where she was informed that they had captured a policeman while kidnapping the girl and later handed him over to the New Town police as he was posted there. However, his accomplice managed to escape.

After the girl was recovered, she narrated her ordeal that after leaving her home for school she went to a public park near the Holy Family Hospital along with her boyfriend.

Her screams caught the attention of the landlord of the building who rescued the girl.
