No news of missing engineer yet

Police are clueless about the retired engineer, who went missing from here a week ago. Bhawani Prasad Mishra was last seen with a woman near his home at Sriram Vihar here on March 26. His son has filed a missing complaint with Burla police station.

“It is difficult to draw any conclusion because we do not have any concrete evidence about his whereabouts. Efforts are on to trace him,” additional SP (Sambalpur)  Dilip Kumar Deo said on Tuesday. However, he said it was not a kidnapping because no ransom call has been made.

Mishra from Bargarh was living here since his retirement in 1998 as executive engineer of Sambalpur municipality. After his wife’s death in 2001, he was residing alone. Though both his son and daughter live outside the state, they maintain regular contact with their father over phone. “He had employed a youth to look after his house,” one of his neighbours said.

Police said Mishra’s daughter, who resides in Kolkata, received a message from his cellphone stating that he was alright and not to worry about him. But he did not respond when his daughter tried to speak to him. “We have registered a case basing on the report of his son Asutosh. We have also formed a special squad comprising senior officers of the district to investigate the matter,” Deo said.
