Delhi woke up to yet another day of shame when the bodies of seven-year-old Mansi and her sister Yashvi, five, were recovered from near the railway track in front of Pragati Maidan power station at around 9.30 am yesterday.
The two children used to go to the nearby Mother Convent School, in the Mandawali area of east Delhi and were reported missing for the past three days. The bodies were found in a decomposed state.
Following the recovery of bodies, local people staged a protest outside the Mandawali police station and demanded justice for the family and arrest of the accused.
Speaking to the media later, Sundar Singh, the children's grand-father said, “Their mother would usually get the children back from school, but on that day (when the children went missing) someone had locked her inside the house.
“After the door was opened by neighbours, she went to the school only to learn that a motorcycle-borne man had already take the children.”
Sundar Singh said that on Thursday night the family received about five phone calls from the abductors, demanding money for the release of the two children.
The family suspects involvement of a neighbour in the incident.
