On 9th of this month, two young brothers and their cousin were chilling outside their home in Mumbra, Thane. Little did they know that a stranger would try to lure the youngest child with delicious chocolates. Thankfully, his 10-year-old brother came to his rescue and successfully prevented the kidnapping.
Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, their uncle Khurshid Warsi said adding that “The area was crowded due to preparations for a marriage function in the locality. At around 1:30 p.m., the three children were playing outside their house. The woman first attempted to engage my younger nephew in some play. Then she picked him up and began to walk away.”
At that time, the 10-year-old learnt that something was not right. Instead of panicking, he started questioning the burqa-clad lady. The latter told him that she was taking the young one to afford big chocolates, but his elder brother didn’t allow that easily.
He then kept following the woman, questioning her constantly. He even instructed his 12-year-old cousin to rush home and alert the adults about this strange woman
“I kept walking behind her and kept asking where she was taking my brother. When I tried to catch her, she ran faster,” he told Mirror adding that he raised the alarm when she wouldn’t halt. “This alerted passers-by, and by then my relatives and neighbours rushed to the spot to rescue the child. When she noticed a crowd, she left the boy and fled.” It has been said that the chase continued for around 8 minutes.
The young boy who is studying in class 2 thus rescued his brother from the kidnapper. The family has not lodged an official FIR with the Thane police
