Maoists abduct Kashmiri Student of AIIMS Bhubaneswar


Bhubaneswar:  More than three weeks after a Kashmiri student of city based AIIMS had gone missing, wall posters threatening to kill the missing MBBS student surfaced in the name of Maoists here in the early hours of Monday.

The handwritten posters bearing the name of banned CPI (Maoist) Odisha State Committee, which were put up on the walls of Baramunda bus stand area in the city, claimed that the missing Kashmiri student Suhail Aijaz has been kept under their custody and warned to release the jailed Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda within seven days or else they would kill the missing student.

Meanwhile, DCP Satyabrata Bhoi informed that Khandagiri Police has seized the posters and started investigation in this regard.

However, Subhashree Panda (Mili), wife of Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda, told Kalinga TV that posters found in the city were an attempt to deflect the investigation in connection to the missing medical student.

Subhashree also suspected the posters to be a handiwork of some unscrupulous elements as her husband has never been a member of CPI (Maoist).

Sabyasachi Panda was captured by Odisha police in Berhampur in 2014 and has been kept in jail since then.

Notably, 19-year-old Suhail, a resident of Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir and pursing MBBS at the AIIMS here since 2016, left his hostel on February 9 and has been missing since then.(Agencies)
