Missing AIIMS student kidnapped, claims Maoist poster
Bhubaneswar: With mystery still shrouding the disappearance of AIIMS student Suhail Aijaz, the recovery of a suspected Maoist poster in Bhubaneswar claiming that Kashmiri youth has been abducted created panic on Monday.
The suspected Maoist poster was put up near Baramunda bus stand in Bhubaneswar claiming that Suhail has been kidnapped by the rebels.
In the poster, the Maoists have threatened to kill Suhail if their leader Sabyasachi Panda, who is currently lodged in jail, is not released within seven days.
The rebels through the poster also threatened to carry out bomb explosions at various places in the city including railway station if the State Government does not pay heed to their demand.
Meanwhile, the Commissionerate Police have seized the poster and started a probe to check its authenticity, informed Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi.
On the other hand, top Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda’s wife Subhashree Panda aka Mili said that it is not the handiwork of any Maoist organisation and claimed it to be a ‘mischief’ by someone.
“Sabyasachi Panda is not a cadre of CPI (Maoist) and the threat to kill Suhail if Sabyasachi is not released is a mere mischief. It is an effort to derail the ongoing investigation by putting up a poster in name of Sabyasachi Panda. Police should conduct a thorough probe and arrest the person whoever has done such mischief,” said Mili.
She even alleged that it may be effort to establish terrorist links of Sabyasachi Panda or it may be the work of a person of the organisation Suhail is involved with.
Suhail Aijaz, a resident of Kupwara district in J&K and pursuing MBBS at AIIMS Bhubaneswar is missing from February 9. The matter came to light after the AIIMS authorities had lodged a complaint in this connection on February 17.
Following the incident, police of three States including Odisha, Jammu and Kashmir and West Bengal are on the job to trace him.
