The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday asked the Varanasi SSP to remain present before the Court in person, in connection to a missing BHU student who allegedly disappeared from their custody in February this year.

The Division Bench comprising Justice SK Gupta and Justice Shamim Ahmad took on record the affidavit filed by him and directed the Petitioner to file the rejoinder affidavit by next date.

Last month, the High Court had taken cognizance of a letter petition addressed to the Chief Justice by Advocate Saurabh Tiwari, an alumnus of the Banaras Hindu University, in relation to the missing student Shiv Kumar Trivedi, who allegedly disappeared from the Police custody.

As per the facts averred in the letter, Trivedi was picked up by certain police personnels from the M.P. Theatre ground, BHU on February 12 and was taken to the Police Station Lanka, District Varanasi. Ever since, there has been no sign of the student. His father made several complaints to senior police officials of Varansai, registered IGRS complaints, etc. but in vain.

Accordingly, the Court had asked the Government Advocate to file a complete statement of facts in a form of short counter affidavit. In compliance of this direction, the Circle Officer, Varanasi had filed an affidavit disclosing the steps taken by the police.

The Lanka Police had informed the Court that though Trivedi was brought to the Police Station on February 12, he ran away on the next day and no details in relation to him were available yet.

During the course of hearing yesterday, the High Court heard Addl. Advocate General Vinod Kant on behalf of the State Government. It also recorded submissions made by AAG Syed Ali Murtaza, on behalf of the SSP. The Petitioner side has been asked to file a rejoinder affidavit.

The matter will now come up on September 22.
