New Delhi, Jan 11 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today gave the Delhi police six days time to trace an advocate's minor daughter missing since last month.
The court, however, did not hide its disappointment with the police for its failure to recover the girl.
''Why are only the girls from Delhi missing,'' a Division Bench of Justice Vikramjit Sen and P K Bhasin asked ACP (South West) Kumar Gyanesh, who filed a status report in the case.
Claiming that the police had some clues about the alleged kidnapping, their counsel, Mukta Gupta, told the bench that the investigation was going in the right direction and the police needed a few more days to trace the girl.
She also submitted that the police had raided several places in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.
On December seven last year, 16-year-old daughter of a practising lawyer from Delhi High Court had gone missing from a reputed school in South Delhi.
High Court Bar President KC Mittal and Vice President JP Singh alleged that the investigation by the Delhi Police was an eyewash and had little new in its status report. They called for a special team under the supervision of the court.
The court had, on January eight, asked the police to file status report on a petition by the advocate-father of the girl.
