The father of a youngster from Gwalior who had gone missing from the Thrissur Railway Station in Kerala on September 10 is worried, as he has not been able to locate his son even after six days.

The father returned home on September 13, after filing a missing complaint.

Akash Rajput (22), from New Fort Avenue of Gwalior, came to Kerala along with his father after convincing him that he got 53,000 rank in NEET exams and he had received a call letter from a private medical college in Palakkad.

He even showed a call letter to his father. However, when they were on their way to Palakkad from Thrissur railway station last Sunday, Akash disappeared.

“He told his father that he was going to the toilet and did not return for a long time. After his father complained to the Railway Protection Force (RPF), we were able to find a call letter from the medical college. When contacted, the college informed us that the letter was fake and they are not open to any admissions, as they are yet to receive affiliation,” Manoramaonline quoted a railway police official as saying.

The official said that Akash’s father, Surendra Singh Rajput, had no clue that his son was lying. He had come to Kerala to take the admission.

Akash went missing at 3am in the morning and his father waited for him at the station till noon. Following this, he complained to the police.

Surendra Singh also told the police that Akash had no particular reason to intentionally run away, and that he had no idea why his son did so.

Singh returned to Gwalior on Wednesday night after filing a missing complaint with the railway police as well as with the Thrissur city police.

“We advised him to file a complaint at their native place too, as the boy might have gone to areas known to him,” a police officer said.
