Bhubaneswar: A 16-year-old boy studying in a Plus 2 residential school in Patia locality here was allegedly abducted yesterday by the educational institution authorities.
He had also informed earlier in the day to his family about ragging, the minor victim’s father alleged today.
Lodging an FIR in this regard at Chandrasekharpur police station, the abductee’s father said, “School authorities are involved in the incident. I am getting phone calls from unknown numbers. I had talked with some miscreants for the last time at around 4 ‘O’ clock yesterday. I apprehend that the miscreants have kept my son hostage.”
The minor’s father works as a marine pilot in Paradip.
When contacted, the private college chairperson Debitosh Acharya said, “Allegations leveled against me are completely baseless. Parents of the student have been doing drama by hiding their own child over money issue. I have not assaulted the boy.”
