NRI hotelier missing in Punjab still untraceable
Jalandhar: Punjab Police have booked a UKbased NRI for the mysterious disappearance of a British hotelier of Indian origin Ranjit Singh Power, who has been missing from the state since May 7, an official said. A kidnapping case has been registered by the Jalandhar police against non-resident Indian (NRI) Baldev Deol, who is the victim’s friend and business partner, on the complaint of the hotelier’s brother Amrik Singh, who resides in Jalandhar. The driver of Deol, along with several people, was questioned over the disappearance of the Wolverhampton businessman but no major breakthrough has been achieved so far, a senior police official told IANS and added that the city police had received no request in this regard from UK officials. “If needed we will seek the assistance of Interpol to trace Deol,” he said, requesting anonymity. Deol was also in Jalandhar when Power went missing.
