Woman Head constable Seema Dhaka of police station Samaypur Badli has become the first Delhi Police officer to get out-of-turn promotion for tracing missing children under the incentive scheme announced by Delhi Police commissioner SN Shrivastava.

She has traced 76 missing children and 56 of them are below the age of 14 years.

These missing children have been traced not just from Delhi, but from other states such as Punjab and West Bengal.

Further, those who trace more than 15 children in the same period shall be given ‘Asadharan Karya Puraskar’. This order has brought a sea change in tracing or recovery of missing children and more and more children have been traced since August 2020.

According to 2019 data, 3336 children were traced out of 5412 kids who had gone missing: or 62 % of the missing children were traced by the Delhi Police.

This year till October, a total of 2629 children were traced by Delhi Police out of 3507 missing.
