Missing school children traced to Golden Temple; Credit war ensues.
SANGRUR: The Search for two missing children from a private residential School in Sangrur has led to a battle for credit between a non-governmental organisation and police. Two children, identified as 14-year-old Gobind Singh and 11-year-old Aryan Kumar, went missing from their hostel on Saturday morning. After the school informed her about her missing child, Aryan Kumar’s mother first called police, and then approached an NGO called Youth Power asking for their help on Sunday evening.The NGO uploaded videos of their search operation on Facebook. The videos showed members of the NGO, but not police, who claim they had collaborated with the NGO. The children were traced to Golden Temple in Amritsar. In a live video he uploaded asking for help, YP Vikramdeep Singh Sidhu is heard quoting police as saying that the missing boys may be in Amritsar as he left for the city. In another video uploaded at 2am on Monday, Sidhu and two other people from the NGO were seen standing in Amritsar with the missing children. “We have traced the boys at the Langar Hall of Harmandir Sahib. In a third video, Sidhu could be heard saying they were going to hand Over the children to Sangrur police. No policemen were seen in the videos. Speaking over the phone, Sidhu evaded a question on whether police had been involved in the search operation. Police meanwhile said it was a joint search operation. “Our cops were leading the operation while YP members were also helping us,” Sangrur Deputy Superintendent of Police Sandeep Wadehra said in a press conference. When asked why policemen were not seeing in the NGO’s video, he said, “Different teams were helping YP members under the Supervision of senior officers.”
