The Class 10 girl from Hyderabad, who had left home on June 7, was reunited with her parents on Friday, days after she was traced to a children’s home in Mumbai.

Members of the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) of Telangana's Rangareddy district counselled the child on Friday, and said that she had agreed to return to her parents, and continue her schooling. 

A special team of the Hyderabad police, reached Mumbai last Monday, along with the girl's parents, and approached the Bhoiwada police to receive her. 

However, she refused to meet or talk to her parents.

"As per her statement to the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) in Mumbai, she said that she had a dream, where her parents died. She said that the only way her parents would remain unharmed, was if she did not see their face for one year. She said that this was the main reason that she left her house," Bachupally inspector K Bala Krishna Reddy had told TNM earlier.

On Friday, a CWC member told the local media that the girl repeated the same apprehensions, but said that she was more willing to go back now, and was ready to see her parents faces.

After she was reported missing last month, more than 30 cops from various units of Cyberabad commissionerate fanned out and started extensive searches in Telangana, AP, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra. 

The police said that the girl mainly used WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram.

Before she left, she deactivated all her social media accounts and deleted WhatsApp history, along with call logs on her phone. 

After she went missing, police said she was found by the government railway police of Dadar railway station and shifted her to Bal Sudhar Gruh, as she gave false identity details.

She told policemen that her name was Anika Shree and she had come from Sai Shree Ashram in Hyderabad. 

Meanwhile, the CWC has also issued orders to keep the girl under observation for a year, and told her parents to be soft on the child, change her school if possible, and appear before them along with the girl every month.
