The family panicked and started looking for the missing girl,who, in the meantime, had been spotted riding her scooter around the lake. Police officer Lekhraj Sihag said he and a diver, Om Prakash pulled the girl out of the lake. When they questioned her, she said she had to “finish a task”. The familiar “blue whale” shape carved into her arm with a knife also offered a big clue.
