We are exploring all the angles of how the children went missing and how a sharp CBI officer exploring the case looks at every eventuality but is unable to nail a single one. Journalists have also played an important role in this case and Neeta was pitch perfect for the scribe who does her own research and investigation into the cases of the missing children,” Thakur was quoted as saying
