Ashok Saaw, his father who runs a hotel business, found Saurabh's scooter lying in a deserted condition in the forest near famous Razarappa temple.

On Friday, he informed the Gola police station about his missing. 

Saurabh is a student of DAV Public School, he went missing during his return from his school. A police team immediately rushed to Madhya Pradesh, but the location of Saurabh was constantly changing. Later, Saurabh was finally caught by police in Mumbai.

Police said that Saurabh is Dhoni's die-hard fan. He didn't want to miss the opportunity to watch Dhoni playing live at the Wankhede Stadium.

He knew that his parents would not allow him to go to Mumbai, so he came to Mumbai himself. Ramgarh police officers said that it isn't was the case of kidnapping.
