TURA, Sept 12: A man who was on his first ever trip out of the northeast region with a group of friends to search for jobs in South India has been reunited with his family after he disappeared from a train station when he got off at the wrong platform, last week.

The victim, Krisan R Marak, had joined hands with a group of friends keen to look for work in the southern city of Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

They boarded a train from Guwahati in the last week of August.

However, during the journey, he disappeared after he got down at Vijayawada station of Andhra Pradesh reportedly to purchase something. As the train departed the station, his friends noticed him missing and couldn’t find him in any of the compartments.

What was worse was that the victim did not have any mobile phone on him nor had identity papers. He also couldn’t speak in Hindi or English, either.

Fearing the worst, the family quickly contacted the Tura police, filing a missing person’s report on the 28th of August.

Tura police communicated the details of the case to their counterparts in Andhra Pradesh.

Andhra police succeeded quickly, managing to trace him out from the coastal port city of Visakhapatnam on the 4th of September. He was taken into their custody for safety.

The family was alerted to the good news and a few members went to Andhra Pradesh to bring him back safely and he was reunited with his loved ones, a few days ago.

This is not the first case of people from the region losing their way and disappearing while travelling to other parts of the country, particularly South India.

Every year, Garo Hills police receive complaints of disappearances of youngsters who go out of the region seeking employment opportunities in the rest of the country.

To help travelers venturing out of the region, police are asking that they carry adequate identity papers with them, including phones, and to get a clear view of their travel plans before embarking on the journey.
