Solider from Belagavi still untraced


Paul went missing from the Indian Army’s Maratha Light Infantry Regimental Centre, 28 days ago
Does the life of a soldier, who is hailed as a saviour for protecting the nation’s territories at the borders, concern the Indian Army?
This is the question now haunting the family of Lance Naik Paul Arun Prasad attached to the Indian Army’s Maratha Light Infantry Regimental Centre (MLIRC), who has been missing for 28 days, with no trace of him. An understandable degree of anxiety haunts his family. With every passing day, his ailing parents, wife and two young kids, are desperately looking forward to hearing from the police authorities who are still clueless about the missing soldier.

Paul (34), a native of Robertson in Bangarpet of Kolar district, was with the MLIRC since he was transferred there about seven months ago.


He went suddenly missing after a party inside the MLIRC campus here on the night of October 1, without informing either to his family, friends or his senior officials.

Clues that emerged after his cell phone was tracked indicated that he was at Belagavi Railway Station at around 11.30 p.m. on October 1. However, his cell phone now remains “switched off” and is untraceable till today.

The MLIRC authorities sent an apprehension roll to the Camp Police Station in the city to trace him.

Authorities tight-lipped

But they are tight-lipped on all questions related to his disappearance from their own campus, by crossing security points which is heavily guarded by armed personnel 24×7.  The camp police maintains that they are investigating the incident.
