Indian officials remain clueless over Mr CA Kallianpur’s sudden disappearance. The 54-year old Tibet Activist and Researcher and the National Coordinator of Friends of Tibet was travelling from Bombay to New Delhi on September 11, 2007 to organise a panel discussion on "India's Foreign Policy on China"
New Delhi, September 18 - The mystery surrounding the disappearance of CA Kallianpur, National Coordinator of Friends of Tibet (FOT) deepens as the officials go clueless. The 54-year old Tibet Activist and Researcher was travelling from Bombay to New Delhi on September 11, 2007 to organise a panel discussion on "India's Foreign Policy on China" at the India International Centre on September 13, 2007 and never reached New Delhi.
Kallianpur's mobile which was traced to Jaipur Circle in Rajasthan was found with Jeetendra, a young boy in Kishenganj village, near Alwar in Rajasthan, who was gifted the handset by his father Kailash Chand who happened to be travelling on the same train on September 11, 2007. The police in Alwar managed to get Kallianpur's phone call record list from Reliance Mobile September 11-13, 2007 and have questioned those who received calls from this mobile number.
While questioning, Kailash Chand admitted that he found the phone lying under a seat in the compartment in which he travelled from 11pm, 11sept till 7am on 12 Sept, when he got down at Mathura Junction. Kailash Chand said he asked co-passengers whom the phone belonged to and for the answer they said, "It might be that of the person who fell down in the train" he was shown the photograph of the missing person, but he said he had not seen him on the train at all and refused any role in the disappearance of the person. Though there is a breakthrough by the Rajasthan police, the police in Bombay are clueless.
According to the Railway officials, there are no cases of any passenger having fallen ill or meeting with an accident at any of the stations between Bombay and Amritsar on Paschim Express route on that day. What is also mysterious is that according to railway officials no person by the name CA Kallianpur had travelled on the train on September 11, 2007 as his name doesn't appear anywhere on the list. Though strangely his mobile phone was found on the same train on September 12, 2007 around at 7am, about 19 hours train journey from Bombay.
Though FOT believes that robbery was the reason behind his disappearance, the organisation does not rule out other possibilities due to the seriousness of the work he is involved with. Meanwhile, on September 14, 2007 one of the FOT campaigners received an email from the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in India informing "Sorry. WE DON'T have anything in this regard yet."
