She said the kidnappers---a local man and an Asian woman---were arrested on Wednesday (aug 3) night. Their identities were not revealed, said the West Asian country's DT News.
The girl named Sarah was abducted from her family car when her mother had left her in their car to buy water. The kidnappers reportedly got into the car and drove it away along with the girl, who was sitting in the backseat.
The kidnappers reportedly deactivated the GPS in the car after committing the crime. The local police then deployed 25 patrol vehicles to track the girl and she was finally sound in Hoora.
Earlier on Thursday, Sushma said she would take up the matter with Bahrain's Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, ANI reported.
Sarah's family complained to the Hoora Police Station after making a post on Facebook which was circulated across the country.
