KOLLAM: A woman reportedly tried to abduct a Class 4 student at Karunagappalli in Kerala's Kollam district on Thursday.

Subsequently, the local people caught the woman and handed her over to the police.

She and her sister are students of SNUP School at Thurayilkunnu in Karunagappally.

Later, the Class 4 girl told police that the gypsy woman forcefully grabbed hold of her hand and asked her to go with the woman. The girl ran to a nearby house and sought help. The woman then tried to flee, but caught by the onlookers. 

According to the report, the woman claimed that her name was Jyothi and she was a native of Pollachi in Tamil Nadu.
