Mangaluru: Children are highly creative, even more so when they are scared of getting into trouble. While many use white lies to avoid being reprimanded, a 10-year-old girl went over and above to stay out of trouble, causing her parents a great deal worry when she told them that her younger brother had been abducted.

The girl and her 7-year-old brother were out playing while their mother, a domestic help, was working in an apartment near Nanthoor. The woman had put her daughter in charge of the younger sibling and told her to keep an eye on him but, while they were playing, the young girl lost track of her brother and after a while, she was mortified when she could not find him.

When her mother came to check on the two of them, the girl told her mother that her brother had been kidnaped by unknown men and she only narrowly escaped by jumping out of the car when its door came ajar on its own.

The cops were immediately alerted to the situation and they jumped on the case, not wanting to waste any time.

Things began to go awry for the young girl, however, when the police began to find inconsistencies in her yarn. When she was asked about specifics of the kidnappers and the vehicle, the girl was not able to give proper answers, making the police doubt her tale. In the meantime, the police also received information that there was no vehicle spotted in the vicinity matching the description given by the girl.

When the “missing” brother finally turned up, quite unaware of what had happened, the girl gave up on her story and revealed that she had lied about her brother’s kidnapping as she was afraid of being reprimanded by her parents.
