Three days after his mentally unstable wife left their two daughters — four-year-old Nisha and three-year-old Sania — outside a temple in Sector 30,Hari Chand reunited with them at the Mother Teresa’s home in Sector 23 on Sunday.

“My wife had taken the children to a relative’s house three days ago. In the evening,she returned alone. When I asked about our daughters,she couldn’t recall where she had left them,” Chand,who runs a tea stall in Bapudham colony,said.

The police said the children were found crying outside the temple. “When we asked them about their parents,they said their father had made them sit here and gone to get candies,” a police officer said.

“We produced them before a magistrate,who ordered them under the care of Mother Teresa’s home. We got the medical examination of the girls done after taking them to the home,” the Station House Officer of the Industrial Area police station Yashpal Sharma said. At the Mother Teresa’s home,the children were ill at ease. “They wanted to go home. The younger one was missing her mother too much. We gave them extra care. They took their meals properly and slept well,” an official at the home said.
