Shillong, June 10 : On May 26th, Pasteur Beat House received two separate complaints about two missing teenage girls, a 13-year-old from Golfink Khliehshnong, and a 15-year-old from Pynthorbah. Consequently, two separate FIRS were filed and registered under Sadar PS Case No. 131(5)23 and Sadar PS Case No. 32(5)23 u/s 363 IPS.
Upon investigation, it was discovered that the girls may have gone missing together as they knew each other. Despite efforts to locate them, no clues were found, and lookout notices were sent nationwide.
