Indian City Alarmed after Burmese PhD Students Go Missing
1 July 2013
Police in the Indian city of Nagpur are on high alert after a survey conducted by the city Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) found that at least a dozen international students from Burma have been missing since 2008, according to a report by The Times of India. The 12 students, who had all come to the city to earn a doctorate in Pali and Prakrit languages from the RTM Nagpur University, were registered as staying at the Chandramani Nagar monastery. “We do not know if the students have returned after completing their studies or have shifted their place of stay. They may even be engaging in anti-national activities,” said a source from the local ATS.
