A 13-year-old girl, who had gone to school to write her examination in the Khajuri Khas area is missing. She has been missing for three days ever since the violence in northeast Delhi took place.
The girl, a Class 8 student, lived with her parents in Sonia Vihar suburb. She had gone to her school about 4.5 km from their home, Monday morning.
Her father, who deals in readymade garments said, “I was supposed to pick her up from school at 5.20 pm. But I got caught in the violence that unfolded in our area. My daughter is missing since then.”
A police officer said a “missing person” FIR has been registered and search was on to find the girl.
Another man, a resident of Vijay Park in Maujpur, said his family members, who were trapped in a house in Shiv Vihar for two days, were also unreachable since Tuesday night.
“I have one house in Shiv Vihar, near Medina mosque. Two of my children live there, two live here in Vijay Park with me. Due to the violence in the area, I could not reach them and have lost connection with them since last night,” Mohammad Sabir, around 70, said.
“They had told me yesterday about mobs surrounding the house and they had managed to escape but I have no clue where they are now. The situation is tense in the area and my appeal to the police is to please help us,” he said.
At least 34 people have lost their lives and more than 200 got injured in the violence that unfolded in Maujpur, Jafrabad, Babarpur, Yamuna Vihar, Shiv Vihar, Bhajanpura, Chand Bagh, Ghonda, among other residential pockets in northeast Delhi since Monday.
