The police are yet to trace the whereabouts of Rajneesh Borkotoky, a resident of Nabin Nagar in Zoo Road area of Guwahati, who had gone missing on September 20, 2018.
According to information, 40-year-old Borkotoky, who works at North East Rural Livelihoods Project (NERLP), on September 20, 2018 went in an auto-rickshaw towards Saraighat Bridge in Jalukbari side.
“An auto-rickshaw driver took Borkotoky from his home on September 20, 2018, to the Guwahati side of Saraighat Bridge. When the auto-rickshaw driver asked him, where was his destination, Borkotoky had told him that he would go to Doul Govinda Mandir in North Guwahati,” a police official said.
The police official also said, “When the auto-rickshaw driver asked whether he would drop Borkotoky in the temple, he had informed that some of his friends would arrive there, so there is no need of the auto, and since then there is no information about Borkotoky.”
A missing case was lodged at the Geetanagar Police Station in the city on September 20, 2018.
The police have informed that they have checked the call details of Borkotoky where they did not find any suspicious information.
However, the sister of Borkotoky, Rajlaxmi, through her Facebook page on Thursday drew the attention of Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, who is also in charge of the Home Department, to look into the matter as the police have so far failed to trace her brother’s whereabouts.
Addressing Chief Minister Sonowal, Rajlaxmi on her Twitter handle stated: “Sarbananda Sonowal, hi sir, my brother has been missing since past Thursday and there has no updates on his whereabouts. We have approached Assam Police but nothing has been updated. Request you to please look in to the matter. My mother needs her only son back home.”
The family members of Borkotoky have claimed that he was last seen at Amingaon where Ati Rudra Yajna was organised.
