    Argo said that after kidnapping ASA, Anggraini moved from one place to another, sleeping at mosques and panhandling money by day. 

    ASA was kidnapped from her parents when she was playing at a mosque near her house in West Bekasi district, on the morning of April 9.

    Her mother came to the police after seeing the mosque surveillance cameras, which showed footage of Anggraini talking to ASA before carrying her away.
