Delhi-based chartered accountancy (CA) student Shubham Maheshwari, who was missing for over a month, was allegedly depressed after he could not appear in the final exam. The police said that Shubham switched off his phone and went to Nepal where he took a teaching job.

The 24-year-old had been missing since February 18, as he was allegedly distressed about discussing his studies with his parents. A police team from Jewar that was investigating the case told HT that Shubham had become a teacher in a school on a monthly salary of Rs 10,000 in Nepal. He was also provided lodging by the school management.

“I was aware that he did not appear in exams as he had discussed it with me. I had advised him to come home and prepare. I never pressured him but the situation was troubling him and he took a bus to Nepal. Now, I have given him free time to enjoy so that he can come out of this situation and live his life peacefully,” Ambrish Maheshwari, Shubham’s father, said.

A missing person case was registered at the Jewar police station after he had boarded a bus from Anand Vihar bus station in east Delhi to Hathras in Uttar Pradesh on February 18. He had last spoken to his mother on the phone during a halt at Jewar, about 70 kilometres from the Capital.

“After Shubham’s return, a police team went to Shubham’s residence in his home town of Hathras. He narrated the events to the police team. Shubham said that he did not want to face his parents as he could not appear in his final exams last year,” Ajay Kumar, station house officer of Jewar police station, said.

He remained untraceable for about a month and returned home on March 20 after the principal of the school where he was teaching found posts pertaining to Shubham on a social networking site. The school principal informed his parents and the police, after which he was brought to Hathras.

After the CA student went missing, his family and friends had launched a social media campaign #findingShubham. The Jewar police team also visited 30 districts in the state searching for him. Pamphlets and posters seeking information about him had been put up across western UP. His parents also went to villages in Bulandshahr, Agra and Aligarh to look for him.
