Shirva resident Sajida Banu (35) and her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter Muhija Banu, have been missing from sister-in-law Simran’s residence in Ishwara Nagar, Manipal.

Sajida’s husband, Shakeel filed a missing persons complaint at the Shirva Police Station after failing to find his wife and kid. According to the complaint, Shakeel had taken his wife and child to his elder sister’s house on February 21.
