Odisha cricketer Rajashree Swain goes missing; Scooter found in forest

Cuttack: Woman cricketer Rajashree Swain of Odisha’s Puri district has reportedly gone missing from Cuttack city under mysterious circumstances.

Her coach has lodged a complaint in this regard with the Mangalabag police. Efforts were on by cops to trace the cricketer.

Her scooter was found abandoned in a forest of Athagarh area, which has raised the suspicion of foul play. Besides, her mobile phone was found switched off.

According to reports, as many as 25 women cricketers, including Rajashree, were part of a training camp organised at Bajrakabati here for an upcoming national-level cricket tournament scheduled to be held in Puducherry. All of them were staying in a hotel in the locality.

The Odisha team was announced on January 10 while Rajashree couldn’t make it to the final list.

Next day, the players went to a cricket field in Tangi area for practice while Rajashree informed her coach that she was going to Puri to meet her father.

As she went missing, the coach filed a complaint with the police.

On the other hand, the parents of Rajashree today reached the residence of Odisha Sports minister in Bhubaneswar urging to trace their daughter at the earliest.
