Husband of the Indian post-graduate student, who went missing last week at an Australian university, has made an emotional plea for her safe return.

Natasha, wife of Sandeep Narang, was last seen on CCTV footage at the University of Tasmania in Launceston, where her husband dropped her on Friday afternoon.

Police say there has been no sign of the 30-year-old education student since.

According to, police said there had been no sign of the student since that day, but had ruled out foul play.

Narang said every second was killing him, and he was trying to search everywhere but since they didn't have any close friends there, he was stressed.

Inspector Michael Johnson said threats to foreign students in other states had not been an issue in Tasmania and there's no evidence to suggest that it was an issue in this particular matter.

Narang said the study stress in a Sikh community that valued high achievement could have caused his wife to run away.

The report said the couple had been in Tasmania for several years, with Natasha completing much of her study at UTAS.
