The Hyderabad police are on the lookout for a missing Class 10 student, Poornima Sai, and seem to have no clue of her whereabouts, a week after she went missing.

Poornima, a student of Bhashyam school in the city's Nizampet area, left home on June 7 and did not return, following which the parents filed a missing complaint at the Bachupally police station.

It is unclear as to why she may have left, the police are looking at several possibilities. 

"We suspected that it could be due to pressure from the school and her parents, but academically, the girl performed above average only and was not a poor student," Inspector K. Balakrishna Reddy from the Bachupally police station told TNM.

The police also said that she deactivated all her social media accounts and even deleted WhatsApp history, a few days before she went missing.

"She mainly used WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram. She deleted and deactivated everything, including the call logs. We are trying to recover some of the deleted data for more clues," the inspector added.

The police have spoken to Poornima's classmates and read their chats with her as well, but found nothing suspicious. 

The police also spoke to her friends and neighbours, who said that nobody knew what led to her disappearance. 

According to reports, the Hyderabad police formed 14 special teams on Monday, to trace the 15-year-old girl, and dispatched them to various places in the city like railway stations and bus stops.   

The Cyberabad Police has also put up a missing post on social media.

"She is moving in Hyderabad and Rachakonda and Cyberabad Commissionerate areas. Dressed in black color leggings and an ash color T shirt, she is around 5 feet tall, and wears glasses. She can speak Telugu and English fluently. The missing girl's parents are deeply depressed," the post reads.

The Deccan Chronicle reported that the police was also looking at other places where the girl is likely to travel, like Vizag, Yanam and even Shirdi, as the family had recently gone there for a holiday.

The police said that any information on the missing girl can be passed on to them, at +919491060942 and +919490617126.
