New Delhi: In a noble initiative, Delhi Police has launched 'Operation Milap', a scheme aimed at uniting missing children with their parents and has already restored two children staying in a Children Home with their respective families in Delhi and Rajasthan.
The drive has been launched by the Anti Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) of the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police during which teams will check all the Children Homes in the national capital.
"The teams will match children's record with the available data of missing/kidnapped children with the police. The scheme has been named Operation Milap. Several teams have been constituted for uniting such children staying in Children Homes," said Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav.
During this special drive, Crime Branch officials will check each and every child in the Children Homes and make all out efforts to get any clue about their parents/home so that they can be restored properly.
Also, local police is being asked to screen and document all the children residing in the shelter homes, railway platforms, bus stands, roads, religious places, etc. Their photographs will be taken by the concerned police officials and documentation will be undertaken to link them properly, he said.
During its first effort on Tuesday, the Crime Branch team checked Bal Adhikar Sashaktikaran Kendra, the Children Home at Prahlad Pur Bangar, Delhi. The team checked the record of children and also spoke to kids at length.
"During one such conversation, the child aged 13 years appeared nervous and on sustained compassionate persuasion, he revealed his mother's name and her mobile phone number. When contacted, the woman identified her son on the basis of description and reached AHTU office from Bhiwadi, Rajasthan along with her brother," said Yadav.
