Army officer goes missing from train

A young Army officer Shikhar Deep, travelling from Katihar in Bihar to New Delhi, has been reportedly missing for the last four days, forcing the Army to issue a public notice seeking information.

“The officer did not reach his destination and went missing during transit. Any information with regard to the whereabouts of the officer may please be conveyed to Lt Col Anant Kumar on mobile number 9128724351,” said the Army notice.

The Army official, posted as Captain at the 8th Sikh Light Infantry Regiment, Jammu, was travelling by the Mahananda Express.

Hailing from Bihar’s Purnia district, the defence personnel boarded the train at Katihar junction as he was returning to his place of posting. His family members suspect the hand of extremist elements behind his disappearance, but police sources say it could be the handiwork of local criminal gang which serves tea laced with sedatives to pounce upon unsuspecting victims.
