Two Gurdaspur girls who had made up a story to show they had been washed away in a canal while clicking selfies, but had actually run away from home allegedly “in search of big money”, have returned home.

The duo, Nisha and Lovepreet, had to sell their mobile phone to pay for their return fare from New Delhi to Amritsar.The police brought the girls to Gurdaspur. They would be handed over to their parents.
No case is likely to be registered. Lovepreet is a BA student at SM college, Kahnuwan, Nisha passed Class 12 this year. Lovepreet and Sophia’s father, Balwinder Masih, is a travel agent and also runs a grocery shop in the village.
The girls returned to Amritsar and from there the police brought them to their home in Gurdaspur, he said, adding “they will be counselled and no case will be registered against them.”
Seventeen-year-old Sophia had earlier said that her sister Lovepreet Kaur (19) and her cousin Nisha (18) had drowned in a canal while taking a selfie, but later spilled the beans, the SHO said.Police became suspicious after the bodies of the girls could not be found from the UBDC canal at the Gurdaspur-Sri Hargobindpur road, he said.“They took a lift from a truck driver telling him that they had just joined the police department and were going to join work at Chandigarh,” Singh said.Later, at Delhi when they realised their mistake and ran out of money, they decided to return home, the SHO said.
