abigail-

KOLLAM: The police have released a sketch of a woman believed to be part of the kidnapping of six-year-old Abigail Sara Reji. The police also suspect that there were two women in the group. The child was shown pictures of 30 women to find the accused but she did not recognize any of them. The officers stopped asking more after Abigail said she is getting scared.

Meanwhile, Abigail is currently under observation at the Government Victoria Hospital. There is suspicion that she was administered sedatives during the abduction. Hence, the child's urine and blood samples have been sent for testing. It will take time for Abigail to fully recover from the trauma. So the police will only slowly seek further details from her. The child's parents and brother are with her at the hospital.

After abducting the child, the gang is believed to have gone towards Varkala. The search for the accused has been intensified. DIG Nishanthini is in charge of the investigation. The investigation team has been expanded to include police officers from Kollam and Thiruvananthapuram. The investigation will be based on CCTV footage. After taking the detailed statement of the child, the sketch of the other accused will be prepared.

The investigation will be centred on the homes of the suspects. The motive of the abductors and their relationship with the child are also being examined. Efforts are on to find the vehicle in which the group travelled and the house where they stayed within the city limits.
