A BTECH II year student of Integral University is missing under mysterious circumstances. The youth was on his way home from Madiaon on Wednesday night when he disappeared. His motorcycle was recovered, abandoned near Sahara Estate in Jankipuram on Thursday morning. His cellphone was responding as ‘switched off’, though the cops collected the call details of the mobile phone.
The police have registered a case in this regard and are questioning the friends of the missing youth.
The matter came to light after Shamsul Huda of A-325, Rajajipuram informed the police about his nephew Saif Siddiqui (21) missing since Wednesday night. Huda said Saif had left home (7, Islah Residential Complex, Kamla Nehru Nagar, Vikas Nagar) at 8.30 pm to meet his classmate Abhishek at the latter’s Akanksha Complex flat in Madiaon.
Saif stayed with Abhishek for about an hour and then left the latter’s house, saying he would be back in 15 minutes.
When Saif did not reach home till late at night, his family started searching for him. They asked Abhishek who informed them that he had not seen his friend again since 9.30 pm. The kin of the youth then informed the police about the mysterious disappearance of Saif. The cops kept calling on Saif’s cellphone but it remained switched off.
The family members were searching for the youth when they spotted his Pulsar motorcycle (UP 53 AB-4955) parked near the main gate of Sahara Estate in Jankipuram with its handle locked.
The mobike was brought to the police station. The police were probing if Saif had a dispute with some of his college-mates or local youths in Vikas Nagar.
They also revealed that call details of Saif’s phone indicated his proximity to some girls and they were probing this angle too. When the police asked Abhishek why Saif left his (Abhishek’s) house in such a hurry, he could not give a satisfactory reply.
Station officer (SO) Madiaon BB Tiwari said they had rounded up about a dozen friends of Saif for interrogation and hoped the youths would reveal some vital clues leading to the whereabouts of the missing student.
