Manchester taxi drivers to the rescue

Santanu Pal the grieving father of the 19 year old Souvik Pal who was missing in the UK since a few days after his New Year's eve party was slightly comforted by the news that the cabbies from Manchester have come forward to help the father find the boy.

After being contacted by the police that his son was missing Santanu has traveled to the UK in search of his son a product designing in Manchester metropolitan university.

He said that the police have also been very cooperative with their work helping the dad with everything they could. The father later went to a cab service in the city who has agreed to help him find his son. “I approached a person who was running a cab service in Manchester and he readily agreed to help me in looking for my son. All the cabs owned by him are carrying posters with Souvik's photo and details. We want people who travel by cabs to see this," Santanu said.

A photo of Santanu from the CCTV cameras earlier was released by the chief superintendent of the Great Manchester police on Wednesday.

The police however couldn't track Santanu's mobile phone which was switched off, which probably died of charge. The father is leaving no stone unturned. He approached the university officials for help from the fellow students. He further sought the help of ISKON and Gita Bhavan in Manchester.

The Government of India is yet to make a comment on the same. Souvik Pal's family has written letters to the Chief Ministers of Karnataka, West Bengal and ministry of External affairs.
