17-yr-old college boy goes missing, mother alleges police inaction

The mother of a 17-year old student of Polytechnic College, Sector 26, has been waiting outside the Sector 26 police station for the police to take and action for finding her son, who has been missing for the last two days. Rameshwari Chauhan, a single mother, alleges that the police is sitting over her complaint for the last two days while the police officials say that they were investigating the case.

The incident happened when Rohit Chauhan, a second year student of Computer Science and resident of Indira Colony, Manimajra, did not return form his college on February 1. Mother of the victim looked for him at all the relative's place and his friends but no one knew where he was.

"We had approached the police on February 2 and had given a written complaint about my son missing since the previous day. The police did not appoint any investigating officer and also did not file a formal FIR on February 3 evening," said Rameshwari Chauhan, who works as a compounder with a private practitioner.

Rameshwari Devi also alleged that the police had written the incorrect age on the DDR filed on February 2. "We had mentioned my son's actual age (17) in the DDR but the police changed it to 19 years. Then we had to show the birth certificate of my son to get the correction done," she added.

According to one of Rohit's friend, Rohit attended two classes in the morning and at 11 am along with a group of friends, he went to a tavern in Sector 27 for a friend's birthday party. As the group returned, Rohit was called in by the principal of the college.

The principal, RK Kapoor, said, "I had received a complaint from some college girls that the boys, including Rohit had troubled them. So I called him in the office and realised that he was intoxicated".
