Thane police have successfully rescued an infant from Nashik, who was kidnapped from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus in Mumbai on March 29.

According to officials, the two-month-old was rescued after Thane police, probing an earlier child kidnapping case in Mumbra township, got vital leads on the CSMT incident.

A 10-month old toddler, Salman, was kidnapped on February 3 from Mumbra and several Thane police teams were probing the case and scouring CCTV images from the vicinity, said Deepak Deoraj, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime), Thane.

“We found similarities in the Mumbra and CMST kidnappings and started working on the leads. In the Mumbra case, our main suspect was a burkha-clad woman,” Deoraj told reporters.

He said a Thane police team reached Panchavati area in Nashik on Sunday and found the infant kidnapped from CSMT with a woman identified as Neelam Sanjay Bora (35).

“Bora has been arrested and the child rescued. Efforts are on to trace 10-month-old Salman who was kidnapped in February from Mumbra,” he added.
