80 tense hours have passed but there is still no trace of two year old Shubhamita Roy Choudhury who was kidnapped on June 5 from Silchar. Shubhamita also known as Trisha was last seen with Rambha Bagti alias Neha, the housemaid in the Roy Choudhury household. While it has been more than three days since Trisha was abducted, the worrisome fact is that till now the family has not received any ransom calls. This has led the cops to look into the human trafficking angle.
According to sources, the incident took place at about 2:30 PM on Monday when Trisha’s mother Dr. Shatabhisha left her residence to go to Health Center of the University. The maid allegedly left the house with the minor along and fled in a white Maruti 800 that entered the campus.
‘The kid was with the maid when her mother left for the Health Centre. The maid locked the house and got down with Trisha’s nappies and other necessities. A white Maruti 800 with two people entered the campus. The maid got into the cab and left the campus,’ the source said.
Till now, cops have arrested Sebur Hossain lascar (36), who was a driver in the Roy CHoudhury household and the absconding main Neha’s former lover Bijoy Bagti (22). However, they have failed to trace Neha as her mobile phone is switched off. Police is suspecting that she is hiding with the child somewhere in Hailakandi district.
