More than a month after he went missing, sub-inspector Sanjay Chavan called his brother ‘from Andhra Pradesh’ on Tuesday, the Nagpada police said. The call was a short one and on the basis of the conversation, the police suspect that Chavan may have found work there as a painter.
Chavan, 42, posted with the Cuffe Parade police station, was last seen on November 2 when he left home on the pretext of going to work. However, he did not report for duty and did not return home. Chavan’s brother urged him to return to his family. However, Chavan was non-commital, police said. “We are glad to know that he is safe. Our priority is to bring him back home,” said senior inspector Nandkumar Mhetar.
