However, neither the sleuths nor the senior officials in district administration clarified how Roy disappeared. 

“There are many things remain untold..It is not yet clear to us yet if Roy left on his own wish or abducted. We will talk to him details”, a CID officer said.

Arnab Roy, a WBCS (Ex) officer of 201l batch, attached to NREGA cell of Nadia administration,  disappeared from the district election office, temporarily housed at BPC Institute of Technology, on April 18. 

Police begun a probe on the basis of a missing diary lodged by her wife Anisha Jash, a 20l6 WBCS officer, working as a deputy magistrate with Nadia administration. She later lodged a kidnapping complaint.

CID sources in Calcutta said that Roy was spotted by tracking his phones which were found switched on early in the morning. A senior officer of CID said, “We traced him out by tracking location of his mobile phone which was found switched on for the first time since he went missing. Today we located Roy’s phone close to Howrah station. We finally found him in a house when he was looking very fatigued”.

Sources said the Roy’s phone could be traced only after he switched on his phones and made contacts with his in-laws in Howrah.
