Nagaland boy goes missing


Kohima, July 23: A Naga boy has gone missing from Bengal while he was on his way to Chhattisgarh.

Ikangwangbe, 16, who hails from Peren district and was going to Arya Jyoti Gurukul, a private Hindi-medium school in Mahasmund district in Chhattisgarh for admission, went missing between Kharagpur and Tatanagar around 9.30pm on Sunday.

According to his family members, around 7.15pm on Saturday, the boy boarded the Karmabhoomi Express from Guwahati. He did not have even a single penny with him when he went missing. His money and luggage were left in his cabin.

Ikangwangbe was travelling with 14 other students and a guide, who was to assist them in admission. The guide, identified as Amit, and two other boys searched for Ikangwangbe after noticing his absence and reported the case to police and the railway authority.

The rest of the boys have reached their respective schools. Ikangwangbe’s parents have requested the authorities to trace the boy.
