Kolkata, Feb 7 (IBNS): Triggering the memories of Dalit scholar Rohit Vemula's suicide and the disappearance of JNU's student Najeeb Ahmed, a tribal student of Kolkata's Jadavpur University (JU) has gone untraceable since last Thursday (Feb 2), days after he faced allegation of sexual harassment on social networking site Facebook, reports said.

According to reports, instead of submitting complaint to the JU authority, a girl student of city's prestigious university posted a status on Facebook few days ago, accusing the Dalit M.Phil student, Sushil Mandi, with sexual harassment charges.

Following the social media post, Sushil Mandi, who is an active member of JU's ultra left organization- Radical, reportedly faced demonstration inside the campus and went missing since Thursday, leaving his cell phone in his hostel-room.

Kins of the student on Monday lodged an FIR at Jadavpur Police Station, naming five students of the same university- Somya Mondal, Nabattoma Paul, Dibyakamal Mitra, Kaustav Mondal and Ambuja Raj, who all are associated with university's United Students Democratic Front (USDF).

However, police from local police station and city police's missing persons squad have started investigation into the matter.

"After receiving a complaint, we have started probe into the case and our search operation is underway to trace the missing student, Sushil Mandi," a senior official of Kolkata Police told IBNS.
