A student of the Central University of Punjab (CUP) went missing from the campus last week.

The Sadar police are investigating the matter and have started scrutinising mobile phone call details and CCTV footage of the university.

According to sources in the Police Department, Manoranjan Sahu (22), who belongs to Orissa, is a student of MSc and was staying at the hostel of the university.

Rashmi Chand Sahu, brother of the missing student, has lodged a complaint with the Sadar police in which he stated that his brother had left the university campus early morning on June 5 and did not reach home.

The complainant said there was a possibility that his brother might have been kidnapped.

In his complaint, he said despite the summer vacations in the university, his brother did not come to the hometown in Orissa and preferred to stay in the hostel at the university.

After waiting for three days, the university authorities brought the matter to the notice of the police, which swung into action and started a thorough investigation into the case.

Jaswinder Singh, Station House Officer of the Sadar police station, said, “Despite the summer holidays, the missing student was staying in the hostel room of the university. Manoranjan’s friends and hostel mates told us that he was addicted to PUB-G and used to play it three to four hours continuously.”

“After showing his ID card at the entry point, Manoranjan went outside from the university campus on June 5. He neither reached his hometown in Orissa nor returned to the campus. His wallet and ATM card are still in his hostel room,”the Station House Officer added.

Investigating Officer Jeet Singh said, “On the statement of the brother, we have registered a case against an unidentified person and started an investigation into the case.”
