AGAR MALWA: An interesting twist has been revealed in the kidnapping case of a two-year-old boy from the district hospital premises on Friday.

The kidnapped boy Aayan had been rescued by Kotwali police in Agar Malwa within 24 hours of the incident. He had been recovered from Manisha, the transgender, at village Ghonsla, about 35km from district headquarters.
Following interrogation of Manisha, police arrested Ajay, who had picked up the child from the district hospital. The couple’s further interrogation revealed the interesting story.
They told police that they knew and loved each other from two years and had married in a temple in Rajkot (Gujarat) about four months ago. Though could not produce any evidence of the ‘marriage’.
