Mumbai, May 27: In a noble gesture, a minor girl was reunited with her mother on Wednesday, thanks to an alert professor. The alleged incident took place on Wednesday when the 11-year-old girl identified as Khushi, who had run away from her home was found alone by the professor on a train.

According to a report in the Hindustan Times, the minor girl lives with her mother and grandmother in Ulhasnagar. Police officials said that on Wednesday morning, Khushi had a fight with her grandmother over some issue after her mother left for work. This led to her grandmother calling her mother and complaining. Mumbai: BMC To Launch 'Shiv Yoga Kendras' From June 1 Across 24 Wards in the City.

Post this, Khushi's mother scolded her and even said that she would beat her once she is back home if she didn’t listen. Fearing that her mother would hit her, Khushi left home when her grandmother was busy doing work at around 12.30 pm. She then took a Karjat-bound local from Ulhasnagar.

However, when the train reached Karjat and started its trip for CSMT again, a professor identified as Sheetal Boritkar boarded the train. Boritkar teaches in an engineering college.

Senior police inspector, M Kad said, "Boritkar was sitting beside the girl when the girl asked her for the window seat. Boritkar gave the window seat when Khushi told her to inform her when Andheri station arrives. Boritkar, being a regular traveller, found it suspicious and started asking her different questions."

Soon, Boritkar found out about the minor girl's school’s name and then googled the school details. 7th Pay Commission Latest Update: Centre Likely To Hike Dearness Allowance to 38% for Government Employees.
