The son of a Border Security Force officer has gone missing from his school, police said today.
According to a senior city police official, Std X student Gopal Dubey has been untraceable since Thursday after he visited the school, which is situated in the BSF complex in the city. The complaint in the matter was filed yesterday, he added.
The boy's relatives have, however, ruled out any foul play behind his disappearance with his uncle saying that Gopal had, in a similar case a few months back, gone to visit some of their kin without informing his immediate family members.
Police said a scan through Gopal's phone details had revealed that the boy had recently contacted some persons in Bangalore. It is learnt that Gopal's family have kin living in the Karnataka state capital.
A senior BSF official said that Gopal's father is currently posted as Assistant Sub-Inspector in Mizoram's capital Aizawl while his family is based in Jalandhar.
