Syed Hasan was keen on going abroad

A 23-year-old Kashmiri student of a private college in Sector 125, who went missing from his PG in Noida, had stayed in Delhi for at least six days before his disappearance, the police said.

The student was interested in going abroad and had been in touch with the family the day he left, the police said. The cops are trying to verify if the student has left for abroad after contacting the airport authorities.

The police have registered a missing person’s complaint and are on the lookout for him. Originally from Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir, Syed Bashid Hasan, a final-year BBA student of Asian Business School, was living in a paying guest (PG) accommodation in Raipur, Sector 126.

According to his family, he had been in Noida for the past two-and-a-half years. “We had spoken to him on December 12. His exams were going on and he had told us that he would be busy and will call us on alternate days. He seemed fine and did not mention having any problems,” Mr. Hasan’s sister Syed Ravia Naseer said. She said that they had even spoken about him coming back home after the exams.

Unable to reach him

When the family called him on December 13, his phone was switched off. Family thought that he must be busy with studies. However, family got worried after they could not reach him for the next couple of days.

The family came down to Noida and found that he had appeared for the first two exams but had missed the later ones. On December 24, they filed a missing person’s report at the Expressway police station after which the family went back to Kashimir.

The police suspect that Mr. Hasan might have left of his own volition. Most of his belongings are also gone. “He had performed poorly in the last semester and had failed in five subjects. He was stressed due to his exams,” said SHO Hansraj Bhadoria, Expressway police station. The PG owner said Mr. Hasan had not returned to his room since December 6 and had been staying with a friend.
