Missing Manipal woman tracked down in Goa

The missing case of a newlywed woman has taken a new turn on Tuesday with the Manipal police tracing the missing woman in Goa.

Jane D’Cruz (28) from Moodbidri, had gone missing from Manipal on January 4.

She and her husband Lloyd Monteiro, a resident of Katpadi, had been to watch a movie in a theater in Manipal.

During the interval, she told her husband that she was going to the restroom. But she did not return to her seat. Lloyd, after waiting for some time approached the Manipal police.

A team of Manipal police led by head constable Vishwajith, left for Goa on Monday and succeeded in tracing Jane on Tuesday afternoon.

Escapes with money

Police said Jane D’Cruz left from Manipal to Mangaluru on January 4. She then visited an ATM and withdrew Rs 30,000 before leaving for Goa by train to meet one Tanmoy Nath, with whom she was in love for five years.

It is learnt that she was in love with Tanmoy Nath (25), a youth from West Bengal settled in Goa. Tanmoy, who works at a studio, met Jane when he was in Mangaluru for a serial shoot. Jane, till recently, worked as a receptionist at Mangaluru hotel.

She told the police that she was not interested in marrying Llyod as she was already in love with Tanmoy Nath. She also told the police that she got married to Lloyd because of parents’ pressure.

The police had a tough time in locating Jane as she was made to stay on an island in Goa by Tanmoy. Police found that Jane’s mobile had several calls from Tanmoy’s number and first they traced Tanmoy. Initially, Tanmoy did not admit to knowing Jane’s whereabouts. But deeper enquiry forced Tanmoy to speak the truth.
