Two teenagers fled from their home after locking their family inside. Investigations by Vejalpur police have revealed that the sisters didn’t like the ‘moral policing’ their mother subjected them to by scolding them for coming late or for using cell phones to talk to their friends.
Harish Gaekwad, an auto driver, lives with his wife Sunanda and three children at Ratnadeep complex in Vasana. They have two daughters, aged 17 and 14 years, and a teenage son.
On Tuesday, while the rest of the family was sleeping, Sunanda woke up at 7.30am and went for a bath. When she returned, she found two of her daughters not in their beds.
Thinking that they might be outside the house, she tried opening the main door. She was shocked to find it locked from outside. Frantic, she started shouting and asking the neighbours to open the door.
After the door was opened, the couple went in search of their daughters but could not find them. Finally, they approached Vejalpur police and informed the cops about their missing daughters. Police sub-inspector DD Chaudhari noted their complaint and started investigations.
Gaekwad told the cops that both his daughters had run away from home a few months back after their mother scolded them for coming late. But they came back after a day.
Investigations also revealed that the sisters didn’t like to be tied down by the rules set by their mother. Chaudhari has started a search operation for the girls.
