A 40-year-old army jawan of naik rank, Gavara Srinivasa Rao, from Narava area of Visakhapatnam city has been missing for more than a month. Neither family members, nor his superiors have found any information regarding him till date.
According to sources, Srinivasa Rao went missing since May 8 while on his way to Jalandhar, where he was newly posted from Roorkee in Uttarakhand. Circumstantial evidence showed that Srinivasa Rao had voluntarily got off from the train at Panipat in Haryana on the morning of May 8 and was not traceable since then.
The jawan called his wife G Yagna Priya from a student’s mobile phone and informed her that he had lost his wallet and mobile and that he would call after reporting to duty at Jalandhar, sources revealed.
Suspecting something wrong, Priya had called at the army officers at Jalandhar and came to know that her husband has not reported for duty. She visited Jalandhar and Delhi, but was unable to trace him.
The mother of two children, Priya, then lodged a complaint with Pendurthi police station. His colleagues informed their head-office, railway police and few police stations in Panipat area about Srinivasa Rao. Pendurthi police have now transferred the case to Panipat police.
