Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar's movie De Dana Dan may not have clicked at the box office, the song 'paisa paisa...' from the film has surely helped Delhi Police in finding a mentally-challenged boy who had gone missing.
When the boy's father went to lodge a missing report, he told the cops that the six-year-old boy keeps on humming this song besides his passion for whistling. Police took note of this fact while looking for the missing boy.
Deepu (name changed), a class-I student, went missing last week from Badarpur. When the boy did not return from school, his father lodged a complaint at Badarpur police station. He told the police that the child was mentally unstable and would not be able to tell his address or his father's name if asked.
When police asked for some clues to identify the boy, the father told that Deepu likes to hum "main baarish kar doon paise ki jo tu hojaye meri", the song from Akshay's movie, and whistles along with that.
With this information, the cops informed all nearby police stations about the boy's singing habit. After the information was circulated, cops managed to find the boy in no time. "This was possible because the boy was found singing this song," said the constable, who found the boy.
The boy, who was produced before Metropolitan Magistrate Devender Kumar Jangala on Tuesday by police, was later handed over to the father. Though Deepu failed to explain where he had gone or whether someone had taken him, he was quick to croon "paisa paisa..." when the cops asked him to sing the song.
The boy's father, who was also present in the court, said that it was his favourite song. While the boy cannot remember most of the things, the song never fails to skip his mind.
