Fifteen year old Akbar Anam Faizi, who went missing from his home near Hai Hospital under Shastri Nagar Police Station on January 24, has been found.
Faizi, a Class X student of Delhi Public School, called home from Mumbai last evening to say that he was safe. Though the police are yet to provide more details about the case, they said Faizi had called home from the Lok Manya Tilak Terminal in Mumbai.
The family left yesterday for Mumbai, immediately after getting his call, to bring him home. The police had alerted the Government Railway Police [GRP] in Mumbai who are keeping him under their protection till the family arrives, Patna senior superintendent of police B S Meena told.
A police source said the reason the boy suddenly went to Mumbai was not very clear. The matter is still under investigation, the source said.
The family lives on the third floor of GMK Apartments located just behind the Hai Hospital near the Raja Bazaar area.
According to the statement given to the police, the family said on January 24, Faizi had gone to buy chicken from a nearby shop. Given order to pack up chicken to shop owner and suddenly disappeared, his elder sister said, kidnapping can’t be ruled out.
