DIGBOI, May 27: While sensation gripped Bordumsa in Tinsukia district after two school students went missing on Thursday, a team of Bordumsa police headed by OC Anupam Gawala succeeded in winning the confidence of the people once again by successfully tracing the missing students early on Friday morning.
According to sources, the two missing students were identified as Amika Sonowal (19) of Kopather village while Laxmi Thapa was the daughter of Debendra Thapa of Rupai in Doomdooma who stayed in the residence of Gopal Gurung at Bordumsa bazaar area and pursued her studies. According to sources, the two girls are students of Bordumsa Higher Secondary School in Aruchal Pradesh and they could not perform well in their Class XII fil examition recently. However, taking the opportunity of the crowded Thursday weekly market, both left the place without informing their guardians and reached Tinsukia in the afternoon from where they withdrew money and boarded a Guwahati- bound night super bus.
However, the swift, prompt and effective action of OC Anupam Gawala yielded the desirable output. The police traced the missing girls early on Friday morning at VIP Road in Azara in East Guwahati and immediately with the assistance of Guwahati Police, both the girls were rescued and handed over to an acquaintance running a parlour near Guwahati. The actual reason behind the girls running away is yet to be known. Meanwhile, the guardians have left for Agartala to bring back the rescued girls.
