The Superintendent of Police, Chanakya Street, Kolkata – 700 053. Subject: Disappearance of Mr Roop Chand Sir, At 10 pm last night, my cousin Mr Roop Chand, who has been staying with us for the past one month, went to buy paan from a shop that is opposite your police station. He has not returned since, though more than 12 hours have passed. He is six feet tall, dark and clean-shaven. He walks with a slight limp, which is the result of a scooter accident he met with two years ago.
He is 22 years old. He was wearing a white kurta and grey trousers when he left our house last night. He is a permanent resident of 8 Barrackpore Place, and has been visiting offices in Kolkata in search of a job as an accountant. I would be very grateful if you could kindly pursue the matter with the utmost urgency. My family and I would be only too glad to provide whatever help might be necessary. Yours faithfully, Vinod Tiwari
