dy-patil-4The Bombay high court directed the Crime Investigation Department that is the CID to intensify efforts to trace a 22-year-student of D Y Patil College who had gone missing over a year and a half ago. A division bench of the Bombay High Court, while disposing of the petition filed by the student’s father, asked the CID to file a report on the progress of investigations. Aurangabad resident Ashok Katkar had moved the HC after his son Ganesh, aged 22 years, a student of M-Tech at D Y Patil College in Belapur, went missing from his hostel on May 11, 2008. Katkar claimed that his son was a budding scientist, who was reportedly working on a medicine for diabetes when he went missing. The CID informed the court that they had obtained reports from the immigration bureau at Bangalore and Mumbai airports. The records revealed that no person fitting Ganesh’s description had flown out of the country. The family had alleged that Ganesh could have been abducted out of the country by a foreign agency. The father’s lawyer said that the telecom company for Ganesh’s cellphone had not furnished proper call records – there was no record of the daily calls exchanged between Ganesh and his family before his disappearance. The CID told the court that they had questioned Ganesh’s classmates and conducted a lie detector test on his roommate in the hostel. The agency had also announced a reward of Rs 10,000 for information on Ganesh, but even this had proved futile. Bureau report – NMTV News.
