Mother urges government to help trace missing son

Bangalore, Jan 9 (IANS) A distraught mother of 19-year-old Souvik Pal, missing from Manchester in Britain since Jan 1, Wednesday made an emotional appeal to the Indian government to help trace her elder son.

Bangalore, Jan 9 — A distraught mother of 19-year-old Souvik Pal, missing from Manchester in Britain since Jan 1, Wednesday made an emotional appeal to the Indian government to help trace her elder son.

"I appeal to the prime minister, president, and chief ministers of Karnataka and West Bengal to help us in locating my son Souvik as we have not heard from him since Dec 31," his mother Mahuya told IANS here.

Suvik's father Shantanu Pal, a civil engineer in Saudi Arabia, has rushed to Manchester to help police search for his son, a student at Manchester Metropolitan University, 320 km from London, since September 2012.

"We first came to know Jan 2 that our son was not seen in the hostel after the New Year party. A complaint was lodged by Souvik's friends with police. It's nine days since he spoke to us," a tearful Mahuya said.

Souvik called his parents Dec 31 night to wish them a happy new year from Manchester and told them that he would be going to a new year party with his college and hostel friends at a nightclub.

"We too called back and wished him early Jan 1. That was the last time we spoke," Mahuya said.

Shantanu, who joined the Al Nahyan construction firm in Riyadh as product designer last year, was in Bangalore on year-end holiday.

The Pals, who hail from Midnapore in West Bengal, have lived here since 2002 when Shantanu came to join Swedish major ABB India energy firm as an engineer.

Souvik's brother Arkadyothi is a school student.

"It has been an agonizing wait as there is no sign of my son even after his father went to help the local police," Mahuya said.

Scotland Yard has joined the search for Souvik outside Manchester borough. The Indian high commission in London has stepped in to assist the rescue mission as his mobile handset has gone missing.

Police have used scuba divers to search nearby lakes and water bodies to check if anyone had drowned.
