The Government Railway Police (GRP) at the Secunderabad Railway Station launched a search operation for a 7-year-old boy who was kidnapped on Monday by two women. 

The police said that the boy's mother had reached the station along with her two children and was sitting at the general waiting room to board the Danapur Express to Kanpur. Asking the boy and his sister to wait there, the mother then went to fetch some tea and snacks. 

When she returned, her daughter was there while the boy was missing. She immediately lodged a missing complaint following which the police checked the CCTV footage. 

In the footage, the police saw that there were two women, yet to be identified, who lured the boy and took him along with them.

According to media reports, the women boarded an RTC bus with the boy but got down near Alpha Hotel itself, just next to the station, after the boy began crying. 

“Two women suspects were identified for kidnapping the boy. One woman was wearing a blue coloured saree and another was in pink coloured leggings with a white top that had black polka dots. They were last seen talking to an auto-rickshaw driver, but however, they did not board the vehicle,” Superintendent Ashok Kumar told reporters.

"All major bus stations, departure points in the city have been alerted. We are trying to identify the auto rickshaw which the women tried to board,” he added.

Meanwhile, Telangana DGP Mahender Reddy also took note of the incident and asked authorities to ensure that the boy is found as soon as possible.
