Ajitabh was planning to take admission at IIM Kolkata and wanted to raise money for education by selling his car. His family has been running a campaign requesting people to send leads in case they see anyone resembling Ajitabh.

In a video message sent to The Quint, Ajitabh’s elder sister, Pragya Sinha shared how it has been a difficult time for the entire family:

They (probe agency) haven’t been able to nab the criminals who are still roaming free and have stolen the peace and happiness of my family.

I humbly appeal to you to kindly look for him in your respective areas.

The incident also highlights the need for background check of users on online portals that provide a platform for various transactions. For Ajitabh’s family, a probe by the country’s premier investigating agency is the last ray of hope.
