Hyderabad: It was a happy reunion for Yasmeen Fatima and her father Syed Qamar after eight long months. Yasmeen, a teenager from Hafeezbabanagar, had gone missing in April last year after she reportedly left her house unable to bear the alleged harassment by her step-mother.

The girl was traced by the Kanchanbagh police at Bangra village in Maharanipur taluk of Jhansi district in Uttar Pradesh last week. She was brought to the city on Tuesday night, albeit not alone.

She had married one Nirmode Singh, a farmer from Bangra village in a small ceremony in the presence of local elders.

Yasmeen, after running away from the house, boarded a train bound for Delhi from the Hyderabad Railway Station. However, she landed in Jhansi. With no help coming around in the entirely strange place, the girl decided to end her life. “I was wandering on the railway track when I met Dharamdas. He took me to his house and allowed me to stay there for a day. The next day, the village elders asked me if I would marry a local youth and live in the village, I agreed to it,” Yasmeen told Telangana Today, explaining how she became the wife of Nirmode Singh, the younger brother of Dharamdas.

Harassed at

It was the daily dose of humiliation that prompted her to leave home, she says. “My mother died when I was six years old. Then I started living along with my stepmother and could not bear the harassment from her,” Yasmeen said. Following her disappearance in April last year, the Kanchanbagh police had registered a case of kidnapping and over the last eight months, sent three teams to different parts of the country to trace her.

In April, after leaving her house, Yasmeen had made a phone call to her father from the train, using a mobile phone borrowed from a labourer couple. “To track down the couple our team toured three States for 10 days but could not succeed,” Inspector Kanchanbagh, N Shanker, said. Yasmeen made another phone call to her father in January.

“We tracked down the mobile phone number to Jhansi district in Uttar Pradesh. A team comprising sub inspector P Ashok Kumar and constables Nayeemuddin and Kranti Raj went to Uttar Pradesh and brought them to the city,” said DCP (South) V Satyanarayana.

“I am happy that she is alive. It is up for her to decide where she wants to live. Anyhow I will be going to Uttar Pradesh and meeting her in-laws,” a visibly relieved Syed Qamar said.
