I quit: Kashmiri student’s last note before he went missing from AIIMS Bhubaneswar 2 weeks ago

A second-year Kashmiri student of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Bhubaneswar, has been missing for more than two weeks now.
Suhail Aijaz, a resident of Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir and pursing MBBS at the institute since 2016, left his hostel on February 9 and has been missing since then.
“Police made a preliminary enquiry and found that he left a note saying ‘I quit’. We traced his location to Kolkata. His number is switched off till date,” Rajendra Prasad Sharma, DGP Odisha, said.
“One of our teams will go to Kolkata tomorrow. We have registered a missing person case,” Sharma added.
The second year student had informed the authorities of the institute that he was going to Chandigarh with his friends to attend a wedding ceremony there and would be back on February 17, Commissioner of Police Y B Khurania was quoted by news agency PTI.
The authorities had lodged a missing complaint with the police on February 18, a day after the students scheduled date of returning to the institute.
He said the youth’s last known location was somewhere in Howrah in West Bengal.
“We are in contact with the Howrah police and the CID West Bengal. The particulars of the student have also been shared with them,” he said.
A friend of the missing Kashmiri youth said that when Suhail did not come back, he tried reaching out to his family and found out that there was no wedding in Chandigarh.
Meanwhile, Suhail’s father Aijaz Ahmed reached here and met senior police officials seeking their help in tracing his son.
Ahmed told reporters that he had spoken to Suhail over phone for the last time on February 7.
He also said that the institute authorities were the first ones to tell him that his son had gone missing.
