Mumbai: Railway police have launched a massive search for a “20- to 25-” year-old man suspected of kidnapping a three-year-old girl while she was sleeping with her family, releasing CCTV footage of the incident to the electronic media.

by her parents, the Railway police have since then been trying to track down the kidnapper. Fortunately for them, they obtained footage of the incident from the various CCTV cameras placed at the CST. The CCTV footage shows a limping man ‑ aged between 20 and 25 years ‑ disembarking from a train and walking around the platform. Spotting the 3-year-old girl sleeping next to her parents, the man sits next to them. Within seconds, he quietly takes the baby away with him. With no still photograph of the kidnapper, the Railway police have released the CCTV footage showing the man carrying away the toddler to the media. Once they nab the kidnapper, police say they are optimistic they will find the missing child. A spokesman said they were seeking the help of public to trace the man shown in the footage. “We are unable to develop a still shot of the kidnapper or the child from the CCTV footage. By releasing the footage, we hope that the viewers will look at the footage and if they identify the kidnapper or can provide any info required to nab him,” Police Superintendent (Railways) Surendra Deshmukh said. They have asked members of the public to contact the Railway police on 022-22620173 if they spot the accused person.
