After conducting a night-long police search for three missing children in Jaipur, the local police discovered that they had in fact gone to a nearby multiplex to watch a night show of SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster film, Baahubali 2.
According to the Hindustan Times, police at the city’s Jhotwara police station received information that that three boys had gone missing from the Shakti Nagar area. The boys, two brothers and a friend, were between the ages of 8 and 13.
The police soon began a massive search operation, tapping into their network of informants and deploying several vehicles to patrol different areas of the city the entire night.
“We consistently coordinated with the different search parties. The station house officer himself led the operation,” Assistant Commissioner of Police (Jhotwara) Aas Mohammed said.
On Thursday morning, the three missing boys were finally discovered at a temple. They told the police officer that they had visited a nearby mall to watch Baahubali 2 but were unable to get the tickets for the movie. Worried that they would get scolded at home for venturing out so late, they lost their way. The children were sent back to their homes.
