In a heart-warming incident that took place in Hardoi district of Uttar Pradesh, a family was reunited with their missing boy due to him having enrolled for Aadhar card before he had gone missing.

The speech impaired boy was found in the Mahua Kola village of Benigunj region four months ago, crying after having been chased and bitten by street dogs. He was neither able to provide passersby with the details of his family nor could he come up with any other suitable information that could lead him back to his home.

Finding him at the mercy of fate, a kind family of a person named Drona Shukla gave him shelter. Since they could not trace the boy’s original family, Shukla thought to take care of him and raise him. Mr. Shukla even decided to get an Aadhar card for the boy, and that’s when he got a lucky break.

As the authorities were taking the biometric details of the boy, like his fingerprints and retina scans, they realised that the biometrics were already registered i.e. the boy already had an Aadhar card to his name. After the pin was entered into the system, the name of the boy (Nitesh Yadav) and his address were revealed. It was also found that he was 15 years old.

Unfortunately as the original Aadhar card didn’t contain any mobile number of Nitesh’s parents, Shukla decided to send a letter to Nitesh’s family intimating them of their boy’s whereabouts.

Nitesh’s family, which lived in Shahjahanpur, immediately reached Drona Shukla’s home on Monday, and were reunited with their kid.

This isn’t the only case of missing persons being traced due to their enrolment in the Aadhar scheme. Recently, another such incident had come to light from Latur district in Maharashtra, where a speech impaired boy, who had fled his home and lost his way was reunited with his family after two years.
