Priyanka Returned to her Home After 1 Year
October- Priyanka, a 2-year-old girl child returned to her
family after 1 year due to continuous hard efforts of 'Team Snehankur.' As the hours
turned into days, then weeks, then months, it became harder and harder to
believe that she would ever be found in safe condition. "Thanks to team
Snehankur & Snehalaya!" Mrs.Vaishali
and Mr. Subhash Gilbile said at an emotional informal function at Snehankur on
|A 2-year-old Priyanka with her parents after 1 year|
Priyanka is the
6th daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Gilbile. They live at Rastapur villege of
Newase Tehsil in Ahmednagar District. Mrs. Vaishali left Priyanka to her mother in
Mohori Village in Pathardi Tehsil in October 2012. It was last 1 year ago in Navratra
that 2-year-old Priyanka was lost near
Mohata Devi Temple in a huge crowd. She was with her grandmother who came for
darshan at Mohata Devi.
Police Patil of village Mohata Devi informed Snehankur that 1-year-old
Priyanka was found in the temple. Team Snehankur immediately took the custody
of Priyanka then gave news of her missing in all leading newspapers, radio and
TV channels to search her relatives. Also her photo and information was given
to all Gram Panchayats and police stations but unfortunately Snehankur received no response about her family.
The family of Gilbile is illiterate & poor. They came to know
about Priyanka's missing status after 8 months when they reached directly to the grandmother's house. The grandmother of Priyanka was afraid of telling about
Priyanka's absconding from her custody. They started to search for Priyanka in all nearby villages but no one guided them properly. Lastly, Police Inspector.
of Pathardi Police Station directed them to go to Snehalaya's Snehankur Centre
for help. Snehankur not only returned Priyanka to her family but also
assured for her educational support due to their poor economic background.
