It has been two-weeks since MBBS student Suhail Aijaz's disappearance, but apart from an undisclosed note, the cops didn't find any clues
A 23-year-old student from Jammu and Kashmir studying at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Bhubaneswar, Odisha, has been missing for over a fortnight, police said on Monday. Suhail Aijaz, a second-year MBBS student from Kupwara district left his hostel on February 9 and has been missing since then.
Suhail Aijaz had informed the authorities that he was going to Chandigarh with his friends to attend a wedding ceremony and would be back on February 17, Commissioner of Police Y B Khurania said.
The authorities had lodged a missing complaint with the police on February 18, a day after the student's scheduled date of return. A note was recovered from the hostel, Khurania said, without elaborating on its content. "Efforts are on to trace the student," he added.
We are questioning the officials and Suhail's friends," Khurania said. He said the youth's last known location was somewhere in Howrah, West Bengal. "We are in contact with the Howrah Police and the CID West Bengal.
The particulars of the student have also been shared with them," he said. Meanwhile, Suhail's father Aijaz Ahmed has reached the city and met senior police officials. Ahmed told reporters that he had spoken to Suhail on the phone for the last time on February 7. He also said that the college authorities were the first to inform of his son's disappearance.
