Kin of missing MBA student allege police inaction

Kolkata: Siliguri resident Debmalya Roy, who was pursing MBA at a private college in Odisha, went missing while taking bath in the sea at Puri on Monday. His family members alleged that Odisha police refused to lodge a complaint.

They accused that the Puri police did not help them

and alleged that there could

be some foul play in the incident.

They said Debmalya went to the sea with his four Odia classmates and held them responsible for his disappearance.

They said the victim had been subjected to harassment on a number of occasions at the private management college in the past couple of months. He was abused because he was a Bengal resident, they said.

"The matter was taken up with college authorities but no steps were taken in this regard," said Asoke Batabyal, a relative of the victim.

It was also alleged that the victim had received threat calls from some unknown numbers in Odisha but no steps were taken in this regard.

The family said they gathered information about the incident after talking to a woman, who owned a tea stall on the beach.

The woman claimed to have witnessed the incident how the victim's classmates left the beach immediately after the incident.

It was learnt that Debmalya had joined the college in June this year and he had been harassed by some of his classmates.

The family of the victim wanted to know why his

classmates, who accompanied him on the beach,

left the spot and rushed to the college immediately after he was reportedly drowned in the sea.

The Odisha police claimed that it was an accident and victim was swept away by strong current.

However, his family members are not ready accept what the police say.
