“So the DPO detained him. The following day, the parents were also called because everyone had tried calling her but her phone wasn’t reachable.”
Sobola revealed that they all went to Kabirat’s house and on getting there; her room locked was while the police tracker was indicating that the girl’s phone was inside.
