Ramgarh (Jharkhand), Nov 25 (PTI) A couple, who earn their living by begging, has been arrested for allegedly kidnapping a four-year-old girl from Jharkhand’s Ramgarh district, police said on Friday.

The girl went missing on November 23 while playing outside her home at the Saunda-D locality, about 55 km away from state capital Ranchi.

Her parents had registered a complaint with the Bhurkunda police station.

The girl was rescued from Patratu Railway station on Thursday when the beggars were planning to board a train with the child, the Sub-divisional Police Officer (SDPO) of Patratu, Birendra Kumar Chaudhary, said.

"Prima facie, it appears that they kidnapped the child in a bid to use her for begging," he said.

The child's photo, which went viral, helped the police trace her as some youths informed police that the girl was spotted with a woman beggar.

The beggars hail from the Dhanbad district, police said.

They live in a makeshift hut at Pathaldih bus stand within the Sudamdih area of the district, the police said.

Chaudhary said the girl was handed over to her parents in Bhukunda. PTI COR SAN SBN SBN SBN
