Bengaluru: A young scientist of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) in Mysuru, who was missing since October 6, was found in Vijayawada, police said on Monday.

"He has been found in Vijayawada. He is on the way to Mysuru," a police officer investigating the matter told P T I without divulging further details.


Abhishek Reddy Gulla, the 26-year old scientific officer at BARC, is a bachelor and had taken a room on rent at Yelwal in Mysuru.

He has been absent from duty since September 17.

When his office contacted him on October 5, he said he would join the office on October 6.

However, on October 6 Gulla left home in his two- wheeler without taking his wallet and even mobile phone and did not return.

Concerned with his disappearance, his superior T K Bose lodged a missing complaint at the Yelwal police station based on which police registered a case.


The reason behind his strange disappearance from Mysuru and emergence at Vijayawada is not known.

"We have to investigate how he disappeared from here," the police official said.
