13-year-old from Punjab cycles to Delhi in search of favourite YouTuber; reunited with family
A police team followed the route he had taken and found him at the district park in Pitam Pura.
A 13-year-old boy from Punjab bunked his classes and cycled all the way to Delhi, covering around 300 km, to meet his favourite YouTuber Nischay Malhan, officials said.
The boy's parents had filed a complaint after he went ''missing'' on October 4.
''The case was reported in Patiala. Officials at the Maurya Enclave police station here received information about the boy and also that the YouTuber lives in Pitam Pura,'' a senior police officer said.
Police circulated information about the boy on WhatsApp groups of all Resident Welfare Associations in the area.
''Eventually, we came across a CCTV footage which showed him on a bicycle near Malhan's house. A police team followed the route he had taken and found him at the district park in Pitam Pura. He was reunited with his family at around 5 pm today,'' the officer said.
Police said Malhan was in Dubai to attend a family function during the time of the incident.
