Fashion designer, Noida, Gurgaon, Shipra Malik

New Delhi: Shipra Malik the Noida-based fashion designer who went missing on February 29 was found on late Friday night. The Uttar Pradesh Police on Friday ruled out the abduction angle in the disappearance of the Noida-based fashion designer. 
Meerut Range DIG Lakshmi Singh while addressing a press conference said that the police prima facie did not find any criminal intent in the case. 
According to police, Shipra Malik had left her home in Noida on February 29 following a property dispute in the family. The police said that Shipra planned her own kidnapping because she was unhappy with the family dispute. 
The fashion designer has told the police that she left her home and went to an ashram in Rajasthan. It was there that she saw on TV reports of her getting kidnapped. "To save embarrassment, she informed her husband, who then informed the Noida police. Then SSP Noida went there with a team," said Meerut range DIG.

The police will not act in the case if the claims of Shipra are found to be true. "There is no criminal liability if a woman just walks out of her home due to some personal conflict," said police.
During questioning, Shipra also told the police that she had been thinking of leaving her family for some time and a TV crime show had inspired her to go ahead with her plans..
Shipra Malik, who had gone missing on Monday, was found in Gurgaon earlier on Friday.
