Nine year old missing from AP goes back home

Written by: Staff

Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 22 (UNI) A nine year old child, Mamabazha, from Dharmapuram in Ananthanag district in Andhra Pradesh, who went missing a few months back today took the train to his native place along with his father from here.

Mamabazha who went missing in Bangalore was rescued by the Thiruvananthapuram Railway Police and handed over to the Child Line in September 2005.

The Childline authorities said they contacted a man in Dharmapuram, whose number the child had. They said the man could not trace his father Mamtah Sherif and then messages were sent to all childline centres across the country.

It was at this time that the childline Vijayawada unit traced his brother Gosmathi (7) and mother Salma. Gosmathi was taken to a shelter home and Salma was hospitalised as her condition was so poor, they said and added she died in hospital in December 2005.

The childline in Vijayawada then contacted Sherif and it was after that he contacted us, they said.

Sherif, a tea vendor at the Dharmapuram railway station, said all the three who were involved in begging often went missing and reached home after many days.

Mamabazha and his father took the train to Bangalore, from where they would be leaving for Dharapuram, the childline said.
