New Delhi, Apr 9: Seven more children have been reunited with their families by Delhi Police as part of its Operation Milap under which the details of the inmates of children's homes are matched against missing and kidnapped persons' data.
So far, 65 children have been rescued and reunited with their kin after the launch of Operation Milap, as part of which records of all the children's homes in Delhi are being matched with the data of missing and kidnapped kids, said Ravindra Yadav, Joint Commissioner (Crime) of Delhi Police.
Several teams have been constituted in the Crime Branch of Delhi Police for the conduct of the operation. A team of Anti-Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) led by DCP Dinesh Kumar Gupta checked various children's homes in Delhi and, after scrutiny of the records, zeroed in on the children whose details were incomplete or sketchy.
These children were taken into confidence and persuaded to give clues about their native places. On the basis of the minor clues and details provided by them, their parents were located and contacted, Yadav said.
Police across Delhi were directed to screen and document all children residing at shelter homes, railway platforms, bus stands, roads and religious places under Operation Milap.
