Bhubaneswar: Even though the whereabouts of Kashmiri student Suhail Aijaz who was pursuing MBBS at AIIMS, Bhubaneswar are still unknown after 21 days since he went missing, a Maoist hand-written poster pasted at Baramunda bus stand claims that Suhail has been held captive by the ultras.
The poster by Odisha State Committee of the Maoists was found this morning at the bus stand which threatens the government to release their dreaded leader Sabyasachi Panda failing which Suhail will be killed by the rebels.
On the other hand, the extremists also threatened of series blasts at police station and railway station on March 11 if Sabyasachi would not be released. The poster also cautioned that many lives will be lost in a blast at Bhubaneswar Railway Station if their demands are not meted.
Meanwhile, panic has gripped city denizens and railway commuters after surfacing of the Maoist poster at nowhere but in the state capital.
Earlier, a three-member Commissionerate police team that had gone to Kolkata for investigation has returned clueless and empty-handed.
Speaking to mediapersons, DCP Satyabrata Bhoi had said, “Till now we are unable to track the student. We have questioned people and scanned the CCTV footage of the areas and we are in regular touch with the Kolkata police and other agencies.”
He also informed that city police are regularly in contact with the police stations in other States, AIIMS authorities here as well his family members. Intensive efforts are on by the city police to trace him out but in vain.
Suhail hailing from Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir left his hostel on February 9 and has been missing since then. The GPS details of the phone revealed his last location was Howrah in West Bengal on February 10, where his phone was switched off.
