Gopal Das, an Assamese folk artiste has gone missing from the Dwarkuchi village under Tamulpur police outpost in Baksa district.

According to sources, the 65 year old folk singer who specialized in Nagara Naam (a type of folk song), had gone out from his residence in Dwarkuchi village during the day on October 22 and has since not returned home.

His family received information of his being there in a relative’s residence in Bijulighat village in Nalbari district.

On reaching Bijulighat on October 23, the family members were informed by their relative that although Das had stayed at their house the previous night, he left their house at about 4 in the morning that day without informing anyone.

The next day the family filed an FIR in the Tamulpur Police Station regarding Das going missing.

Even after searching for the artiste at different locations, the family has failed to procure any information regarding his whereabouts so far.
