Bathinda: Rajiv Gupta, a Faridkot-based photo journalist of Dainik Jagran on Wednesday went missing under mysterious circumstances. The photographer made the last call to his landlady Paramjit Kaur and asked her to make efforts to trace him, mentioning that he had been kidnapped and he was unaware of his location.
Mediapersons approached the police but the cops did not respond to the situation, alleged the president of the Electronic Media Association of Faridkot, Devanand Sharma. He also accused one of the city police officials of misbehaving with the delegation which had gone to seek police help in tracing the missing photo journalist. The mediapersons then staged a dharna outside the SSP’s residence. But even after two hours district top cop SS Mann did not come out to listen to the agitating journalists. The protesters, including Amit Sharma and Jaswant Jass, said that Gupta was last seen in Faridkot at about 3 pm and his mobile location was last traced at Ludhiana.
