Thane, Jan 24 (Agency) Just like an action scene from a typical Bollywood flick, the Crime Branch of the city police intercepted an express train bound for Delhi at Jhansi Junction and rescued a 14-year-old girl from Mumbra town of the district who was on her way to meet her suspected kidnapper in Delhi, police said on Saturday. After the teenager was kidnapped by unidentified person from Kausa, an offence under section 363 was registered with the Mumbra police station on January 21. During the course of investigation, police got a tip off that the girl was travelling by Firozpur Express No 02137 to meet the accused, who allegedly wooed her, at Delhi.
