To clear the backlog of complaints of missing children, the Ludhiana police converted complaints of missing children into FIRs and registered 50 FIRs on Friday and Saturday. Of these, 31 cases were registered on Friday while the rest on Saturday. Quick action was taken as the Supreme court of India had asked all the state governments to submit reply about the investigations in the cases of missing children.
Similar is the trend even in other districts of Punjab as well.
Most cases were registered against unidentified persons and the complaints were pending for many months. The FIRs are being registered with kidnapping charges against unidentified persons.
