Berhampur: An 18-year-old girl from Daringbadi area in Odisha`s Kandhamal district was rescued from New Delhi`s Nihal Vihar recently, police said on Thursday.

The girl from Ugadinga village was working as a domestic help in a house when the police located her on Saturday.

"The girl was united with her parents on Tuesday," said Inspector In-Charge (IIC) of Daringibadi police station JK Hial.

The girl was missing for the last six months and her father had lodged an FIR on January 8 after all their searches proved futile. Acting on a tip-off, a police team was sent to New Delhi, police sources said.

The Police, however, said they were searching for the person who had taken her to New Delhi.

"We are yet to record the girl`s statement," Hilal said.
The girl`s statement assumes significance as several girls in their teens are allegedly trafficked from the district.
