Escape Odyssey: 12-Year-Old Girl's 33-Hour Bus Journey to Avoid Hostel Return

Hyderabad: A 12-year-old girl undertook a 33-hour journey, exploiting the free travel provision for women on state-run Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) buses to avoid returning to her hostel. The incident concluded when police located her at Jubilee Bus Station in Hyderabad, bringing an end to an anxious search involving both parents and police teams.

The eighth-grade student, residing in Vidyaranyapuri and attending a private school with hostel accommodation, had spent her Christmas holidays at her grandmother's house in Peddapalli. Reluctant to return to the hostel, the girl's actions triggered a series of events over 33 hours, inadvertently facilitated by the government's free travel policy for women.

Accompanied by her grandfather, she boarded a bus at 11 am on Thursday from Karimnagar. Instead of reaching her father, who awaited her at Mancherial chowk, she disembarked the bus on the outskirts of Karimnagar. Opting for an autorickshaw to the Karimnagar bus stand, she continued her journey on a bus bound for Hyderabad.

Concerned about her absence, her father, K Narsimham, sought information from the conductor, discovering that she had left the bus on the outskirts of Karimanagar. Initiating a search, Narsimham, along with the police, used CCTV footage and social media to locate his daughter.

Abhilash from Karimanagar district recognized the girl from social media posts and informed the police of her travels from Hyderabad to Gangadhara mandal in Karimanagar district. Indicating her intended destination as Jagtial, police dispatched teams to various bus stands. A team in Hyderabad found her disembarking from a Nizamabad bus at 1 am on Friday. Following a health checkup, the girl was reunited with her family.
