Allahabad techie goes missing in US

A 40-year-old software engineer from Allahabad has gone missing in the United States recently.

Father of the missing techie said that he last spoke to his son Dilip Kumar, who works with the Microsoft in San Jose, California, on March 15. Since then there has been no communication with him.

“San Jose police registered a case on May 14 based on a missing complaint lodged by the family and started investigation,” said Brij Bihari Lal Srivastava, father of the software engineer.

Police believe that Kumar has not left California. The location of his mobile phone was found inside his residence. However, they are clueless about his whereabouts.

Srivastava wrote to the President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, urging them to put pressure on the US authorities to locate his son.

Srivastava, a retired government official, also approached the US embassy for help.

“The External Affairs Ministry has assured all possible help,” he said.

“Kumar went to the US after completing his studies around eight years ago. Before switching over to the Microsoft, he had worked with the TCS. He is married to an American, Irian Wilson. Though he did not visit India for years, he was in regular contact with the family, including his elder brother, Vinit and two sisters,” Srivastava added.
