Infosys' Chennai employee missing since Monday

Avik Mukherjee (23) was last seen on August 9 by his roommates at his rented flat in Singaperumal Koil, 40 kms from here.

According to Avik's father Bhrigu Mukherjee, a senior officer at Bhilai Steel Plant in Chhattisgarh, Avik’s roommate Devanjan Bhattacharya had informed him on Tuesday that Avik did not return after he left at 9.30 pm on Monday, they said.

"When Devanjan called me on Tuesday and told that Avik had not returned, I asked him to lodge a complaint. He then filed a missing person complaint with the Maraimalainagar Police Station," said Bhrigu, who arrived here along with his wife last night.

Avik had joined Infosys on July 1 and had moved to the flat after a seven-day orientation at the company hostel.

When Bhrigu visited the Infosys office along with a local inspector he discovered that Avik had not been attending work for a few days, prior to his disappearance.

Bhrigu also met Assistant Superintendent of Chengalpattu, Xavier, this morning in this connection.
