Parents of nine-year-old Sintu want their son back. They believe that the boy, who was found abandoned by the London [Images] police few days ago, was indeed their son. Sintu was kidnapped three years ago from Aurangabad town in Bihar.
"We are hundred percent sure, he is our Sintu," Ganga Prasad told rediff.com.
Sintu's uncle Gaya Prasad said the boy was six-years-old when he kidnapped from outside his residence in Kikri locality of the town on March 3, 2005. Three days later, the police lodged a kidnapping case. Till date, the cops have not been able to make any breakthrough in the case.
Ganga Prasad said he received a call on Sunday from his brother-in-law in Orissa informing that he had seen Sintu on television news channels. The couple then cross-checked the news reports and realised that it was indeed their son.
Though the boy found by London police was wearing a turban, Ganga Prasad and his family members assert that the boy's facial features match with those of Sintu..
The family has sought the help of the state and Central government in this connection.
Sintu is nephew of Rashtriya Janata Dal legislator (MLC) Bhim Singh.
