Missing Sambalpur youth rescued from UP

Sudarsan Meher of Sambalpur got his son on Saturday. He was rescued by Uttar Pradesh (UP) police from the house of Jaiprakash Jatt at Dhanoura in the northern state. Police said Manoj Meher, 24, was working for Jatt, who had kept him in captivity.

Police sources said Manoj, eldest son of Sudarsan, of Remed, on the outskirts of town, was working in Goa for some time. He had come to Sambalpur during Nuakhai in 2011. Since then there was no news about him. “In July, I received a letter from a friend of my son that he was kept in confinement in UP,” Sudarsan told TOI over phone from Dhanoura police station.

After receiving the latter, I approached Sambalpur collector and police, he said. A news item was published in Times of India on August 30. Sudarsan said he decided to withdraw a police complaint against Jaiprakash after he agreed to pay all pending dues of his son.

“I spoke to the collector and SP of Amroha district and requested them to trace the missing youth. I am happy that he has been rescued,” said collector (Sambalpur) Balwant Singh.

Deputy commissioner of police, Dhanauri, Mahesh Singh said police took prompt action and rescued the boy.
