45 days later, missing Kerala girl found in Bengaluru?

Days after 20-year-old college student Jesna Mariya James went missing, reports have surfaced that a woman quite similar to her was spotted in Bengaluru with a Malayali youth.

The girl, a Ranni native, who is pursuing her second-year degree at a college in Kanjirapally in Kottayam district, was missing since March 22 morning.

According to reports, Anto Antony, MP, who is engaged in campaigning in the poll-bound state managed to meet a Kerala man, who claimed to have spotted Jesna. This development came after a special police team comprising 15 members, including cyber experts and women cops, was formed on Tuesday to probe into her disappearance.  

The MP gathered more information from this man, who told him that he spotted the girl with a long-haired youth from Thrissur district at the Aswasa Bhavan at Dharmaram in Bengaluru. The man, who had engaged in a conversation with her also mentioned that Jesna had told him that the youth lived near her mother’s house. Some other people also identified Jesna when the MP showed them her photograph.  

It is being said that the couple reached Bengaluru, via Sengottai in Tamil Nadu and had taken medical care at NIMHANS as they had met with an accident on the way. CCTV visuals of the hospital would be examined to draw conclusions on the report.

Official confirmation on this piece of news is still awaited but the police have reportedly, asked Jesna’s family to get ready to proceed to Bengaluru if need be.
