Udupi, Jun 19: The two girls from here who had gone missing about three days ago have been found in Mumbai and brought back home to their families.
Sandhya D Shetty of Matapadi and Divisha of Ajjarkad, both aged 19, and students of Udupi G Shankar Women’s First Grade College, were reported missing since June 16. Separate complaints were lodged by their families after efforts to trace them failed.
It is now learnt that two were found at a railway station in Mumbai on Thursday June 18. The Udupi police who went to Mumbai brought the girls home on Friday June 19 and handed them over to their families.
Sources said that the two had scored low marks in exams, and out of fear of reprimand, they went to Mumbai.
Sandhya had left her house when her mother and brother were away, while Divisha had said that she would be going to college, but did not return home.
