Bhubaneswar: A three-member team of the Commissionerate Police on Thursday left for New Delhi to trace the whereabouts of missing AIIMS Bhubaneswar Kashmiri student Suhail Aijaz.
The police decided to look for Suhail in New Delhi after an unidentified person called his father Aijaz Ahmad from Gurugram.
Sources said the caller from Gurugram informed Suhail’s father that a person matching the descriptions of Suhail was spotted in the area.
Police Commissioner YB Khurania said the police team would examine the CCTV footage, speak to the Kashmiri people in the locality and question the caller. He said all efforts were being made to trace the missing student.
Notably, the Odisha, West Bengal as well as the Jammu and Kashmir police are on the lookout for Suhail after he went missing from the Howrah railway station on February 9. An Odisha police team had gone to Howrah to conduct a probe but returned empty-handed.
The issue got murkier after a poster claimed that Suhail was kidnapped by Maoists. Following this, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti requested her Odisha counterpart Naveen Patnaik to take swift action and trace the youth.
