Dehradun: Police on Wednesday found a blind girl,
who had gone missing from the National Institute of Visually
Handicapped here, at Jalandhar in Punjab, officials said.

The girl, identified as Kiran, was traced through her
mobile connection, which was being monitored since her
disappearance, they said.
A police team has been dispatched to bring the girl back
to Dehradun.

She will be questioned following her return and
necessary action against the officials of the institute will
be taken based on information provided by her, they said.

Kiran had disappeared on Sunday, after she was allegedly
beaten up by the principal of the institution.
Kiran had left behind a note in her room in which she
alleged that she was beaten up and asked to stand in the heat
for two hours by the principal, Kamalbir Singh, who had
accused her in a theft case.

Singh was not available for comment.

Students of the institute had staged a protest against
the incident yesterday.
