A 30-year-old assistant professor at Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) has gone missing.

Sukhpreet Kaur of Baghapurana (Moga) had been residing at the faculty accommodation on the campus. She is an ad hoc assistant professor in the Hindi department.

The university officials said she went to meet someone outside the campus on September 11. Four days later, the police and the university authorities searched Sukhpreet’s room after a complaint from her brother.

The police found a note on her table. It says: “I am going to meet Jazzinder Singh Virk alias Garry at Subway or Chocolate Home in the university market. He is from Kharar and resides in street No 2 of Dashmesh Nagar on the Jhuggian road. (The names of Virk’s parents and their telephone numbers are also mentioned). He has to return money which he had borrowed from me. If anything happens to me, he should be held responsible”.

The police have collected CCTV footage from Chocolate Home which Sukhpreet visited at 5:16 pm on September 11. She returned soon as the man was not there.

She later met him in the parking area and went with him in his car, the police said. The car then drove towards Putligarh on the GT Road.

Sukhdev Singh, security officer, GNDU, said: “The head of her department received a call from Sukhpreet’s father on September 14. We then intimated the police.”

Sukhpreet’s father alleged that he had received a call from her daughter’s number. The caller demanded a ransom of Rs 3 lakh. The police have registered a case under Section 365 (kidnapping) of the IPC.

A police team from cantonment police station raided several locations in Kharar and Chandigarh. The police traced Sukhpreet’s mobile phone location in Chandigarh.

Vishaljit Singh, Assistant Commissioner of Police (West), said: “Hopefully, we will crack the case soon.”
