NRI Missing Sikh girl, 16 found with brother-in-law in Indiana

Missing Sikh girl in US found with brother-in-law
Los Angeles, Oct 6

Police in Nevada state say they have found a 16-year-old Sikh girl who went missing last week. Karamjit Kaur, 16, was with her brother-in-law Parvinder Singh in Indiana state.

The two were traced to a hotel in Merrillville city in Indiana. No reasons have been given why she disappeared with her brother-in-law.

The girl was last seen on her bike Sep 30.

Kaur, who had moved to the US months ago with her family from India, told her family that she was going out on a bike ride.

But she never returned. Her bike was found the next day at a skateboarding park.

Police said they were investigating the case and hadn't ruled out criminal charges. But they confirmed that the brother-in-law was visiting Reno before Kaur disappeared.

Disappearance of newly arrived Indian girls and brides in the US and Canada is not uncommon.

There have been a few cases when the girls, who married NRI grooms based in Canada or the US, disappeared after coming here.
