New Delhi: Two transgenders were on Saturday arrested for allegedly trying to kidnap a toddler from a popular shopping mall in west Delhi area, police said.
The incident took place yesterday evening at Pacific mall in Subhash nagar area when a Janakpuri resident along with her children and a domestic help, had gone to the mall to celebrate her mother's birthday.
While the family was busy celebrating, one of the transgenders whisked away her 4-month old son.
Fortunately, the domestic help saw the transgender running away with the toddler in the pram, and raised an alarm. The security officials of the mall stopped the transgender and recovered the baby safely. Another transgender, who was still inside the mall, was also held and the duo were handed over to the police.
A video clip in which one of the transgender can be seen walking with the pram, with the child seated in it surfaced today.
Records were checked but the accused were found to have no crime record in past. They were granted bail under legal provisions but investigation of the matter is underway, he added.
