CHENNAI: Seeking to trace his wife and hearing-impaired son, who had gone missing during a visit to the city a week ago, a Dharmapuri-based man approached the city police commissioner’s office here on Tuesday.

N Kumar (37) of Dharmapuri was accompanied by his relatives. His wife Manjula had come to Chennai with her son on April 27 for the latter’s treatment at a private hospital in Maduravoyal.

Kumar told reporters that he was told by the hospital authorities, over the phone, on the night of April 27, that his wife was involved in a theft and was therefore handed over to the Madurovoyal police. Manjula was allegedly caught red-handed while stealing the mobile phone of a nurse.

Speaking to Express, a police personnel attached to the Maduravoyal police station, to whom the woman and her son was handed over by the hospital authorities, said that the woman was let off as the hospital authorities and nurse did not press a formal complaint.

“We verified the CCTV footage at the hospital and confirmed her stealing the mobile. She was let off as there were no formal complaint. She left saying that she was leaving for her native place,” the official said. 

Kumar’s petition to find his wife and son has been forwarded to the deputy commissioner of police, Anna Nagar, police sources said.
