A devotee from Rourkela who went to Ayodhya to watch the Pran Pratishtha of Ram Temple has allegedly been missing since. The missing person has been identified as Manoj Bebarta. 

To trace Manoj, his son Rohit Bebarta and a relative have been looking for him in every nook and cranny of Ayodhya for the last seven days, but to no avail. 

In Ayodhya, Rohit has been moving about the streets holding the photograph of his missing father to get clues about his whereabouts. He has also filed a missing complaint at the police station.

Speaking to OTV over the phone, Rohit lamented, ”I have not been able to trace my father as yet and police are not helping in this matter. One week has passed since my father went missing. My grandmother spoke to him over the phone on January 21. My father was saying that he was not feeling well and would be back in Rourkela.”

Rohit rued that as police did not take any action, he went to Ayodhya to look for his father.
