Actor Raghubir Yadav Still Untraceable
Bollywood actor and theatre artist Raghubir Yadav, against whom arrest warrant was issued by a family court in September here for failing to appear before it despite summons, is still untraceable even after city policemen launched a massive manhunt for him.
On September 19, the Bandra family court, which is hearing a case against Yadav filed by his estranged wife Purnima, had issued an arrest warrant against him. The court had earlier issued summons to Yadav for failing to appear in court for some time.
Actress Purnima had dragged Yadav to the court alleging that he did not pay maintenance for herself and their 19-year-old son Achal every month. The duo tied the knot in 1988 but separated in 1996.
After the warrant, police had submitted a report to the court in December stating they were not able to locate the actor for the past few months.
"After submitting the report, we continued our efforts to trace him. Unfortunately we could not find him yet. It's about four months now since Yadav disappeared," said L D Tompe, Senior Inspector of Aarey police station. "We also visited the suburban Goregaon address mentioned on the warrant issued by the court," he said.
The police had been keeping an eye on persons visiting Film City at Goregaon daily but in vain, Tompe said. PTI
