The Chandigarh Police are banking on increased reward money to crack the mysterious disappearance of Raghav Wadhwa (24) who had gone missing from Sector 23 over two years back. The Chandigarh Police have now decided to give Rs 2 lakh to anyone who can provide any information that could lead the police to crack the case.
Raghav,a law student and a resident of Gidderbaha in Muktsar district had disappeared with his white-coloured Swift car (PB-60A-4800) from Sector 23 on the night of January 4-5,2010,where he had reportedly gone to drop his cousin. Since then the police authorities have failed to make any headway in the case. The police only recovered his mobile phone from a person in Moga after some months.
Earlier,unhappy with the police investigations,the family members of Raghav had filed an application in the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking transfer of the case to Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI). The High Court handed the investigation to Superintendent of Police(SP Operations). The police have also constituted a Special Investigation Team(SIT) under SP RS Ghumman which also has DSPs Jagbir,Satbir and Kamaldeep as its members.
Speaking to Newsline ,SP RS Ghumman said,We will be giving an amount of Rs 2 lakh,double of what we were giving previously to anyone who can provide us any information regarding the case. We are investigating all angles in a new manner and many people have been questioned again.
He added that the police had written to the Transport and forest departments of nearby states. The police have asked these departments for any information of a car being found abandoned or recovered from somewhere.
