An Indian boy, Sonu, who went missing from Delhi six years ago and was traced in Bangladesh will be brought back to India on June 30. This was revealed by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
“Sonu – who was kidnapped from Delhi was found in a shelter home in Bangladesh. We matched the DNA with his mother. The test is positive,” Ms Swaraj tweeted.
“Indian High Commission in Dhaka has obtained Sonu’s custody. He will reach Delhi on 30th June,” the external affairs minister wrote in another tweet.
Ms Swaraj also thanked all those who looked after Sonu, now 12, in Bangladesh.
She also thanked a few journalists for bringing the matter to her notice on May 24.
Sonu, who was traced at Jessore in Bangladesh, was said to have gone missing from Delhi in 2010.
A senior official of the Indian High Commission in Dhaka went to Jessore in May to meet Sonu on the directive of Ms Swaraj.
