Bangalore, January 7, 2014: The flight operation manager of Air India, who sent the police into a tizzy after he went missing under mysterious circumstances, returned home safely on Monday.
It turns out Arun Mehta decided to take a trip to Tirupati to get away from work pressure, without telling anybody.
The HAL police, who swung into action following a complaint by the family alleging kidnap, said “He was so upset that he did not want to talk to anyone.”
“We are waiting for him to settle down to see if there are any other reasons behind his disappearance.”
According to the complaint filed by his wife, Anitha, Mr. Mehta used to park his car at the HAL bus stop to board the BMTC Volvo bus to Kempegowda International Airport. On Friday night, he returned from the airport to HAL bus stop, but didn’t come home. Ms. Anitha said she tried to call her husband on the mobile phone, but couldn’t reach him. She went to the bus stop and found the car there. The bus driver and other witnesses also confirmed that he got off the bus. This led her to file the complaint.
Mr. Mehta reportedly went to a nearby shopping mall, picked up a few things and got into another bus without informing his family.
