As a police case was logged in this matter, they came to her assistance and searched for her family members, which finally led to her reunion with her son and brother.  Since then, she had been living on the streets with none to care.

Highlighting over the case, Arvind Kumar Nirwal, in-charge of Shamshabad police station in Agra said that "On August 7, we got information that a woman was being thrashed mercilessly and dragged on the road while being mistaken as a child lifter due to rumours".

"The woman was rescued but seemed very troubled and revealed her name as ‘Shanta’. Lady constable Deep Mala took care of her and came to know that she was from Bharuch in Gujarat. The woman remembered her brother’s name Kanti Bhai Tadvi, and from then on we started our investigation," Nirwal further added.

As soon as we got more information, through the in-charge at Garudeshwar police station (Gujarat), we got to know that her brother Kanti Bhai was traced. Following which a video call, was held managed to connect the brother and sister.

"Her brother revealed that Shanta was married to Dinesh Nanji who ditched her and married another woman. In a state of depression, Shanta moved out of her in-laws’ house 10 years ago and somehow reached Agra, where she lived on the roads with none to care," stated Nirwal.

It was not just the brother but also the woman's son who was excited to meet her after a decade. “After coming to know about his missing mother, Shanta’s son Mahendra Tadvi called up and heard his mother's vioce. Mahendra reached Agra on Sunday and requested to take his mother her back,” claimed Arvind Kumar Narwal.
