BALANGIR: Kantabanji police are yet to find the 14-year-old physically challenged boy who went missing from Kantabanji railway station a month back.

The boy, identified as Ramesh Naik (13), was staying with his grandmother at Kantabanji after his father’s death. His mother Manju Naik is working in Chhattisgarh as a labourer. Five years back, Ramesh lost both his hands in an accident. He was engaged in begging at Kantabanji railway station.

On June 30, Ramesh had gone to the railway station but did not return. On being informed by his grandmother, Manju returned from Chhattisgarh and filed an FIR at Kantabanji police station on July 1. But, police are yet to trace the boy.

In another case, six-year-old Sapna Saraf has been missing from Sunaripara of Kukudahad village under Kantabanji police limits since last Durga Puja.

The missing girl is still untraceable and police are clueless. The incident occurred when the girl along with her father was watching ‘Ravan Podi’ at Sunaripara ground near KV College.

Speaking to mediapersons on Monday, Kantabanji IIC Jyotirmay Bhukta said both the cases are under investigation. As per preliminary investigation, Ramesh had boarded a Raipur-bound train on the day. It is suspected that he is at Bilaspur railway station in Chhattisgarh. A police team would visit Bilaspur to search the boy soon, he added.
