On July 9,Gyanesh Jha,a sergeant with the Indian Air Force,left home in Ambedkar Nagar’s Vayusenabad to teach students in the evening. It was usual for the 35-year-old — he would return from work,have evening tea and snacks at home and then go to give tuition classes in New Friends Colony and Saket.

Jha told his wife he would return by 10 pm. He is yet to return.

Jha lives in Vayusenabad with wife Pooja and two children.

A week gone,the police on Thursday (July 16) registered a kidnapping case. A senior officer said the family has not received any ransom calls yet.

Strangely,Jha’s motorbike was found parked in the Vayusenabad Bhavan campus (where he works). The officer said Jha’s gold chain and mobile phone have been recovered from the bike’s storage space.

His brother Ashok said,“He told Pooja that he would return by 10 pm. We began calling up on his cellphone once it got late but the phone was switched off. We rang up all acquaintances but each of them said they had not seen him that day.

“We approached the police the following day (July 10) when he still did not return.”

After registering a missing case a police team inspected the Vayusenabad campus and recovered his motorcycle.

Ruling out robbery as motive,police officials suspect personal enmity as the reason behind Jha’s disappearance.

Jha comes from Bihar and has been in the Air Force for the last eight years. An Air Force spokesperson said he was not aware of the incident.
