CHENNAI: Three minor girls who left home with high hopes to see the Korean pop band BTS perform were found at Katpadi railway station in forlorn condition. It was just two days ago that the Karur native girls, each aged 13, went missing from their home. They planned to reach Visakhapatnam first and then embark on a trip to Korea by sea. It is reported that the girls left home with Rs 14,000.

The girls initially planned to leave the country in December but the plan faltered at the last minute. They planned to board a train from Erode and then go to Chennai. They also planned to somehow reach Visakhapatnam from Chennai.

The initial excitement subsided when the girls had a taste of reality. They even planned a return journey back home after learning about the difficulties they would encounter in the forward journey. The police found the girls at Katpadi junction near Vellore in Tamil Nadu. The girls were on a return journey home when the police caught them unnoticed.

The girls left home on January 4th. After reaching Chennai, they even booked a room after a couple of failed attempts. Rs 1200 was paid for the room. After one day in Chennai, the girls experienced fatigue and decided to drop their cherished dream and return to Karur. The girls stepped down at Katpadi station to purchase food but spent more time at the station, not having any idea that their train had already departed. The girls thus got stranded at the station and the RPF took them into office feeling suspicion.
