A medical aspirant from Madhya Pradesh who went missing from Thrissur railway station on September 10, has returned home.

Twenty-two-year-old Akash Rajput from New Fort Avenue of Gwalior came back home alleging that he was abducted.

His parents maintain that he was kidnapped by an organised admission mafia so that the MBBS seat allotted to him under the government quota can be kept vacant and sold to someone else.

Akash was found walking around Gwalior in a semi-conscious condition by his neighbours on Saturdaynight. 

P Naveen of Times of India reports, "Since everyone knew that he was missing they brought him to my house. He was in bad shape with torn clothes. He says he was driven in a vehicle straight from Kerala and dropped here. Akash is stressed and cannot recall anything," said his father Surendar Singh Rajput.

Surendar Singh Rajput had returned to Gwalior on September 13 after filing a missing person's report with Thrissur police.

TOI report quotes the youth as saying,"I can’t recall anything other than the fact that someone hit him hard on my head.There is still a wound on my head. I was brought here in a vehicle. I could hear them talking in Malayalam. I was blindfolded."

Akash had come to Kerala along with his father to take admission in a private medical college in Palakkad.

He had convinced his father that he got 53,000 rank in NEET exams and he had received a call letter from a private medical college in Palakkad.

Akash had even showed a call letter to his father. They were on their way to Palakkad when Akash disappeared in Thrissur.

After his father complained to the Railway Protection Forece (RPF), the railway police had contacted medical college and they were told by the college authorities that the call letter was fake. Further, they said that they are not open to any admissions as they are yet to get affiliation.
