The Tapi police have arrested a constable of Maharashtra Police for allegedly kidnapping a 17-year-old schoolgirl from Vilda village in Nizar taluka of the district.
The constable was identified as Subhash Padvi (24), a resident of Dhulwad village in Nandurbar district of Maharashtra.
The police said Padvi allegedly kidnapped the girl after she reportedly refused to be friends with him. They said the alleged abduction took place on Thursday afternoon when the girl was on her way to school.
According to the police, he allegedly took her to a hotel in Nasik in the neighbouring state.
Later that night, the girl escaped from the hotel and approached a nearby police chowky. While she was narrating the incident to the police, the alleged abductor reached there and identified himself as a police constable posted in Nandurbar district.
Subsequently, the Nasik police detained Padvi and informed the Nizar police about the incident.
In the meantime, the girl's parents had filed a missing complaint, based on which the Nizar police came to know about the girl's identity.
Later, a team of Nizar police and the girl's parents left for Nasik and brought both the girl and Padvi back on Friday evening.
