The girl, identified as Pooja Mitra (20), went missing from her residence at Tirupati Street in Sowcarpet on Friday. She was staying in UP with grandparents, while her parents and two younger brothers are living in Chennai. She had come here for semester vacation and her father runs an eatery in the same area.

“On Friday, my brother left home at around 7.30 am. Half an hour later, I tried calling Pooja but did not get any response. I rushed home at around 9 am, only to find her missing,” said Alok Kumar, Pooja’s uncle.

Immediately, a complaint was registered at the Korukkupet police station who have launched a search for the girl.
