New Delhi:┬áThe Delhi Police on Tuesday said that it has arrested a 19-year-old youth for allegedly kidnapping a minor girl he met on Likee, a video sharing app similar to TikTok, from Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor.

Atul Kumar Thakur, deputy commissioner of police (DCP), south Delhi said that the police received a complaint from a man on Monday night around 11.30 p.m. about her 15-year-old sister missing since morning.

“During enquiry, the missing girl’s elder sister told the police that she was in contact with one person through Likee app and the person had never met her sister physically in Delhi but she suspects his involvement in the missing of her sister,” Thakur said.
