The Matunga police on Thursday united two minor girls, who had run away from their homes at Surat in Gujarat, with their families. The two were found roaming around in Dadar station.
Constables attached to Matunga police station patrolling near Dadar (East) station on Wednesday had spotted the two roaming around, and brought them to Matunga police station.
The girls, aged 11 and 17, had given the constables evasive answers when they were questioned. The cops then informed Matunga police station, which sent a lady officer to escort the two to the police station.
Sub inspector Atul Kumar Landage of Matunga police, said: "When the girls were brought to the station they were scared. The lady officer convinced them that the police were there to help them."
He added: "As the girls started opening up, they gave us their names, address and phone number. They told us that they were from Surat. We immediately informed their parents and the local police in Surat."
The girls were fascinated with the city of Mumbai and wanted to see it. On Tuesday they boarded a train from Surat and landed up in Dadar.
Landage said: "The girls had seen Mumbai in films and wanted to see the city for themselves and just took a train and landed in the city."
The two were handed over to their parents, who had come to Matunga police station, on Thursday.
