According to the police, 23-year-old Kommu Kalpana, a resident of Bondugula village in Rajampet Mandal in Nalgonda district, was visiting the Vemulawada Temple on Monday evening with her parents and two sons. As the family could not afford private lodging, they decided to spend the night at the temple itself.
In the early hours of the day, Kalpana reportedly went for a bath, leaving her children with her parents, who were asleep.
When Kalpana returned to her sleeping family around 4 am, however, she couldnâ€™t find her as-yet-unnamed, 4-month-old son. Kalpana immediately rushed to the temple security officials, who informed the police when they were unable to find the child.
A Srinivas, Vemulawada Town Circle Inspector, told The News Minute, â€śWhen security officials informed us about the kidnap we checked the surrounding areas but we were unable to trace the baby. But when we saw the CCTV footage we observed one old woman kidnapping the boy and escaping. We suspect that someone who wanted a baby boy abducted the baby.â€ť
A case has been registered under section 363 (kidnapping) of the Indian Penal Code.
