Vikas, 12, is a brave boy, and fears none. He is not just intelligent, but a witty and quick thinker too. While going to his school in Sitapur, Maharashtra, Vikas often notices a desolate house with no people around located just a few yards away from his own school. One day, he asked his dad, “Do you know who lives in that house? Dad said, “That is a desolate house and no one lives there”.
But Vikas’s inquisitive nature took away all his sleep and his entire focus shifted to that deserted house. One night, he planned to find out the reality of that abandoned house without informing anything about the same to anyone.
As the clock struck 10 PM, Vikas straightaway goes to his room. He silently took his smartphone (with GPS and voice recorder function on). Then he waited for his parents to fall asleep so that he could go to that abandoned house all alone. He pretends to be sleeping on his bed when he was actually brainstorming about how to face the biggest adventure of his life.
An hour later… on the same day
Vikas notices his parents were sleeping. He opens the main gate silently, and moves forward. Vikas was carrying his smartphone and diary. Just when he reached near to that house – Vikas was stunned – he could see a light emitting from that house.
Vikas’s interest grew more as he went nearer to the house but kept hiding himself with trees and bushes. Now, the house was exactly a few meters away. Vikas quickly noted down the full location details of the house in his diary and left that on the very spot for safety concerns.
He also starts video recording the entire events on his smartphone through a nearby window. To the utter dismay of Vikas’s imagination, he saw a few masked men, who were swiftly walking from one room to another in that house with loads of cartons and boxes.
Vikas then understand that that the house was neither “haunted” nor “desolate” but a safe haven for antisocial elements who carry out their illegal activities during the late midnight hours. Without wasting a moment, Vikas quickly sent an “SMS” to the police, and also took out the memory card hiding the same inside his shoes.
Suddenly, a masked man came from behind, and immediately took Vikas to that room. The criminal put a sticking tape to Vikas’ lips and tied his hands and legs. Vikas was surprised what he saw before his eyes – it was a room full of boxes of drugs and cocaine. The house was full of criminals – around 20-30 were there.
Can Police Save the Boy in the End?
Meanwhile, Vikas’s parents woke up a couple of hours later and were extremely worried to see main gate opened while Vikas was nowhere in the house.
Just a few minutes after Vikas’s kidnapping, the Police officers rushed to the exact spot – thanks to Vikas’s timely SMS and GPS device. The Police officers soon arrested all the criminals.
Vikas was rescued and taken to his parents. Vikas handed over the “memory card” to the police officers as evidence of what he recorded.
Soon, Vikas was aptly rewarded and recognized by the state for his bravery and fight against anti social elements at such a little age.
