The police have re-united a man with his family after six years.
A special team followed up a small clue they got on Thursday and brought him back from Tiruppur. Consequently, the man missing case that was lodged by the family four years after he went missing has been closed, Superintendent of Police M. Rajarajan said.
The police said that Velmurugan, a car driver, went missing in 2012 within three months after marriage.
His wife was pregnant then. His family at Kalkurichi made frantic attempts to find him. After their efforts went in vain, his wife Muthulakshmi lodged a complaint with the Mallankinaru police in 2016. The police could not go further in the case as he had switched off his mobile phone.
Meanwhile, the family received a notice from the Regional Transport Office last week regarding suspension of Velmurugan’s driving licence for violation of traffic rules in Tiruppur.
When the family approached the police, Aruppukottai Taluk Inspector S. Annaraja realised that he had got a vital clue about the whereabouts of Velmurugan.
“I traced the vehicle whose registration number was mentioned in the notice. It turned out to be a lorry run by a transport office in Tiruppur. When our team went there, we found Velmurugan there,” Mr. Annaraja said. The police found that the fleet owner had brought Velmurugan from a gurukulam where he had undergone treatment for mental disruption.
“The man had lost his memories and was peacefully working at the transport office after treatment. It was the action by Tiruppur police for his violation of traffic rules that has helped us trace him after six years,” the Inspector said.
He is able to recognise his mother and recalls that he got married with Muthulakshmi. “Velmurugan is united with his five-year-old son for the first time,” Mr. Annaraja said.
Mr. Rajarajan appreciated the efforts of the special team and presented them with cash rewards.
