New Delhi: A 3-year-old child who went missing from India Gate a week ago has been found in Janakpuri area of New Delhi on Sunday. Jahanvi was left in the market area by an unknown person with her family's number written on her neck.

Her parents identified her at Mayapuri police station.

Jahanvi had gone missing from New Delhi's VVIP area of India Gate since September 28. Despite the availability of CCTV footages and a phone number given by the girl's parent to trace, Delhi Police had remained clueless about the child.

Delhi Police commissioner BS Bassi had announced a cash reward of Rs 50,000 for anyone who helped in tracing the child.

Posters with the girl's photo, requesting help from people to trace her have gone viral on social media. On Facebook, a campaign by the name of 'Bring Back Jahnvi' has been launched to ensure that more and more people are made aware of it.

A protest was also held by family and relatives of the girl in this connection at India Gate which was later shifted to Jantar Mantar by the police.
