In an act of kindness, Jaggaiahpet Sub-Inspector Ch Chinna Babu went to the rescue of a 15-year-old mentally challenged boy who was staying in the local bus station for nearly 10 days. The boy has been identified as P Siddharth of Rajiv Nagar in Vijayawada and reached Jaggaiahpet about 10 days back.
“Social activist Ch Konda informed us about him who is not able to furnish his details. The boy was shifted to an orphanage after giving him a haircut and new clothes. The details of the boy were posted on social media platforms to hand over him to his family with the support of social activist Srinivasa Rao,” said Chinna Babu, the Jaggaiahpet sub-inspector.
On Thursday, March 11, Siddharth’s aunt responded and approached Jaggaiahpet, and informed them Siddharth was not associated with his parents and his mental health condition was not stable during his childhood, due to some family dispute, The New Indian Express reported.
“We have handed over Siddharth to his aunt, a teacher, who promised to take care of him,” Chinna Babu added.
