A 43-year-old woman from Maharashtra's Thane district has been arrested for allegedly coaxing a minor girl to run away from her home in Bihar and keeping the girl in her home, an official said on Friday.


Accused Naaz Golandaz, a resident of Mumbra, had befriended the girl from Bihar's Bhojpur district on social media, the official said.


On March 17, the girl went out saying she wanted to meet a friend but travelled to Mumbra near Mumbai. She then started living in Naaz's home, the official said.


On a complaint by the girl's parents, the Bihar police and Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) launched a probe and tracked her down to Naaz's home.
