50 days since her disappearance, Jesna still remains untraced
The missing case of 20-year-old Jesna Mariya James, which grabbed headlines from March 22, has intensified as the police haven’t found a clue even 50 days later. The Bengaluru police, who were assigned with the task of tracing her after reports of her being spotted in the city surfaced, could not find any image matching hers in the CCTV visuals.
The Ranni native who was doing her second-year degree course at a college in Kanjirapally, Kerala, disappeared on her way to her paternal aunt’s home. Tracing a missed call received by Jesna’s sister led to a location on the Andhra-Karnataka border, but it was on the name of another person and the cops are looking into the possibility of the call having any connection with her disappearance.
The claims of Jesna having eloped have also surfaced as she was allegedly spotted with a youth in Bengaluru, but the family has refused to believe this and has presented the cops with visuals of her arriving at Punchvayal, Mundakkayam, which is her aunt’s place.
Meanwhile, the Latvian tourist, Liga, who went missing in the same state two months ago, was back in news when her body was found three weeks ago. Liga’s sister called Jesna’s sister Jessy, to check on the progress in the case. Jessy and her father have reportedly expressed satisfaction in the police probe.
