Misunderstanding leads to kidnap alert

Shillong, Aug ,24: A misunderstanding has led to kidnap alert by the school authorities in the city.

A statement issued by the police said on Thursday that the incident on Wednesday afternoon about two persons who had come to Laitumkhrah Presbyterian Higher Secondary School, Shillong to pick up a class KG student had been presumed to be a case of attempted kidnaping.


“It may be informed that today the two same persons came to Laitumkhrah Police Station after hearing of the allegation of kidnapping. On enquiring into the matter, it is ascertained that the two persons came to pick up their nephew, a child of class KG and gave the pet name of the child (which was not known to the teacher) instead of the official name to the class teacher. The pet name of the child also happened to be the name of a child in the same class, hence the misunderstanding”, the police said.
