Deepti’s father said today that she called him up in the morning and told him that she was in train in Panipat and coming to Vaishali. She told me that she will come to Vaishali, but I asked her not to come to Vaishali and said I will come to New Delhi Railway Station to pick her. I don’t know how she managed to escape. She was calling me up from the phone of her co-passenger in the train. She was found sitting in the train. I don’t know whether she was in trauma, he told reporters here.
Deepti’s mother said that her father picked her up at New Delhi Railway Station. She had called up her father in the morning and told him to pick her up, she further said. After she went missing, her father had told the police that when the auto crossed the Hindon river bridge on Wednesday’s evening, Deepti called him and gave him the location. She was also heard shouting at the auto driver for taking a wrong route, he had said, adding thereafter her phone was switched off.
