Assam trader disappears from Tura under mysterious circumstances, claims to be abducted

By Our Reporter | TNT News | June 12, 2018

A trader from Goalpara in Assam, who sold clothes in the weekly market at Najing Bazaar in Tura, every Saturday, has gone missing since the previous Saturday under very strange circumstances leading to a lookout by police personnel of West Garo Hills.

Ismail Sheikh of Goalpara in Assam apparently left his stall on the same morning last Saturday during the market hours and never returned. He however made a call from his mobile to his brother in Goalpara claiming that he had been abducted by some unidentified men.

Further he also claimed that his abductors had come to his stall and bought a few clothes but asked him to come to their house for payment, to which he apparently agreed. He then left his stall and followed them and was allegedly abducted by them. The abductors of Shiekh had apparently demanded an amount of Rs 5 lakhs from his brother.

“We have identified a few suspects and have knowledge of the fact that the victim is alive he has been allowed to speak to his family. We are looking at all aspects of the case,” said SP of WGH, Dr MGR Kumar.

Police investigation in the case has already begun though ground reports have differed from the one stated by the victim and his brother, putting a huge question mark on what exactly happened.

The true nature of his disappearance has also come into question after hawkers close to his stall did not even recall him coming the past Saturday to the stall itself.
