Durgapur, Nov. 17: Three-year-old Dibyasha was playing on a heap of sand outside her home here last evening when power went off. She is missing since then. Her family members suspect Dibyasha was kidnapped.
Her father Dinesh Agarwal, a businessman at Phulbagan, about 200 km from Calcutta, said: “I informed police late last night after we failed to trace her.”
Grandfather Ghanshyam said: “Around 6.30 pm, the neighbourhood plunged into darkness. Power returned in minutes but Dibyasha wasn’t there.”
A year-and-a-half ago, Ashis Megotia, 22, a relative of the Agarwals, was kidnapped from the same area. He is still missing. The CID is probing the case. Asoke Megotia, Ashis’ father, said today: “I think it is the same gang.”
District police chief K.C. Meena said all police stations have been alerted.
