Khammam-based techie remains untraced in London

Sanne Ujwal Sriharsha, the town-based techie and an M.S. student of Queen Mary University of London, still remained untraced in London, where he went missing under mysterious circumstances on Friday, leaving his parents in utter despair here.

Anxious parents

The 24-year-old youth’s father Sanne Uday Pratap, the district unit president of the BJP, and mother Varalakshmi, spent anxious moments for the third consecutive day on Sunday with no word of their son’s whereabouts in London.

Sriharsha is a meritorious student and completed his first year of the master’s programme in Electronics Engineering with specialisation in machine learning for visual data analytics, said Mr Pratap.

Search under way

We have received a phone call from London police on Friday afternoon saying Sriharsha was reported missing and a search was underway to trace his whereabouts, he said, adding that his son was residing at Beaumont House at Princess Square, Bayswater, in the United Kingdom.

Sriharsha had been studying exceptionally well and even attended an internship programme on artificial intelligence in Tokyo city of Japan recently, he recalled sobbing.

“He never ever exhibited any negative thoughts during his entire school and college days. The reported recovery of Sriharsha’s laptop bag and his mobile phone at a beach near London points needle of suspicion to some foreign students who stayed along with him at Beaumont House,” he said.

Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy and former Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya represented the matter to the Union External Affairs Ministry to ensure speedy investigation into Sriharsha’s missing case and his safety.
