According to the police, Chandra boarded a bus from Jammu, which was Jaipur bound via Delhi. The officer said: “We contacted the bus driver and he told us that nobody noticed when Chandra got out of the vehicle. He also left his bag behind. The conductor noticed it once the bus reached Jaipur. There was an Army uniform in it, along with a diary.”
“So far no case has been registered. Further investigation will be done after his post-mortem result is out,” the officer added.
