Nuapada: A migrant labourer from Kamkeda village under Komna block of Nuapada district who had reportedly gone to Andhra Pradesh to work has allegedly gone missing. The labourer has been identified as Jamar Biswal.

According to sources, a few days back, Jamar had gone to Andhra Pradesh to work in a brick kiln. His parents however have alleged that the owner of the kiln was harassing and physically assaulting him.
