One month has passed after Suhail Ajjaz, a Kashmiri student of the AIIMS-Bhubaneswar, disappeared but there was no breakthrough in the case yet.
Suhail's father Ajjaz Ahmed Kataria told the state police that he had received a call from a PCO in Gurgaon area on Wednesday informing him that some people had seen his son, Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi said.
He said the team will first talk to the local police and locate the public call office (PCO) from where Suhail's father had received the call.
"If there is any CCTV in the area, the police will verify the footages," Bhoi said.
Earlier, a police team had gone to West Bengal in search of Suhail but returned empty handed on March 3. Suhail's mobile was last traced in Howrah area of West Bengal.
The police of three states - Odisha, West Bengal and Jammu & Kashmir - along with the Central Intelligence Bureau have been working in tandem to trace the missing Kashmiri boy.
A second-year MBBS student and a native of Kupwara district in Jammu and Kashmir, Suhail left the hostel here on February 9 telling his friends that he was leaving for a wedding ceremony in Chandigarh and would return in a week.
However, he did not return even after nine days following which a missing report was lodged at Khandagiri Police Station in the state capital.
