A video of a child kidnapping is going viral on social media. In the video, a person dressed in a niqab came toward a child sitting on the roadside. Apparently, the child gave the niqab-clad woman some money then she touched the child’s shoulder. And, then the child got fainted and another man came with an auto-rickshaw(tuk-tuk). They took away the child on the rikshaw.
