“I come here to work every day. Papri was not in her home since yesterday. Today I came around 2 pm but did not found Papri’s brother and father. I don’t know if they have gone somewhere looking for the daughter or somewhere else,” the domestic help of the family told Northeast Now on Monday at their home in the city’s Gandhibasti area.
