The video is unrelated to Hindu girls and is not from Bangalore being abducted by members of a specific community.

@moiegy tweeted “#وزارة_الداخلية . As part of the Ministry’s efforts to uncover the circumstances of a video clip that was circulated on social media, it shows two people taking two girls from an elevator. Upon examination, it was found that on 12/13/2023, the mother of the two girls (a resident of the #مدينة_نصر_ثالث_بالقاهرة Police Department) submitted a report to the department stating that her ex-husband (an accountant in one of the countries) and others accompanied him took one of their two children without her desire… and requested proof of this without mentioning any other details, claiming There were family disputes between them, as they lived with their father after their separation until 2022, and she obtained a ruling regarding her custody of their two daughters and its implementation after that, and she did not provide any evidence of that. Upon investigation, it was revealed that the father of the two girls sought the help of two people to commit the incident as shown in the video clip, and that he left the country on the same date of the incident, accompanied by his daughter, via Cairo’s air port to one of the countries of her own free will and desire, as proven by security surveillance cameras.
After codifying the procedures, it was possible to arrest the two people, “one of them shown in the video clip with the father of the two girls – and the second, the driver of the car used to commit the incident.” Through discussion with them, they admitted to committing the incident as referred to in agreement with the father of the two girls in exchange for a sum of money. Legal measures were taken.. and the Public Prosecution took over the investigation. ” on Dec 20, 2023. This has clarified that the incident has nothing to do with kidnapping of the Hindu girls in Bangalore.

moiegy posted the photos and revealed about the incident even in an Instagram post on December 20, 2023.

To get further clarifications and ideas, we did few more investigations and found few more articles on this incident. We visited Roya News, which published an article on this incident on December 21, 2023 with the headline “Father drugs, kidnaps his two daughters in Cairo”. Even another article also clarified the details about this incident on December 20, 2023 with the headline “Video : 2 girls drugged, kidnapped inside elevator Egypt”. This shows that it is true that two girls were kidnapped inside an elevator, but it is not at all from Bangalore.
