Newest developments in the child lifting case may help locate Sridhar - the boy who went missing from the Chennai Central railway station on May 3. Missing posters of the boy helped a passenger identify three-year-old M. Sridhar, who said he saw the boy wandering on his own in the Minjur railway station before he called the police. ¬† Special police teams are already conducting investigations in and around all railway stations from Central in Chennai to Nellore in Andhra Pradesh. In this process more than 120 people have been questioned, reports The Times of India. ¬† The Hindu reports that the Government Railway Police (GRP) in the meantime, has stumbled upon another camera‚Äôs footage. This new footage shows the woman who has been suspected of kidnapping Sridhar earlier this month. The police are planning to post this video across social media in an attempt to trace the boy and to find the woman responsible. ¬† The boy had arrived at Chennai‚Äôs Egmore railway station along with his family members. They were all travelling from their home town. Their plan was to take a local train to VOC Nagar near Washermenpet from Chennai Central, from where he was reported missing. GRP began investigation and closely scrutinized footage captured by CCTV cameras installed at the Moore Market Complex which saw a woman in a red sari with a little girl in her arms, taking Sridhar away, from platform 13 to 14, coaxing the boy into boarding a train heading to Sulurpet, Andhra Pradesh. ¬† Police say the woman may have abandoned Sridhar later, for the fear of getting caught.
