Patna: Hundreds of angry small business owners in Patna on Thursday blocked the busy Boring Road demanding the recovery of a missing auto and motorcycle repair shop owner who has not been seen since he left home in Indrapuri on March 10.

Accusing the police of neglecting the case of missing Laxman Prasad, age 42, the protestors said that the entire Bihar police machinery was engaged in finding illegal liquor in the state thus neglecting other cases of crime in the state.

"For nearly a week, Laxman Prasad had been missing after a man took him out of his rented home on March 10 to take a look at a motorcycle someone was trying to sell. Nearly an hour after that, his phone went dead. We tried to find him everywhere but when he did not show up next day either, we found a case of missing person with the Pataliputra police station. However, even after passing of a week, the police have yet to initiate a search and find operation," said Laxman's younger brother Shatrughan Prasad.

The protestors blocked the road near A N College and burnt tires to disrupt traffic. Chanting anti-administration slogans, they demanded immediate formation of a search team and recovery of Laxman Prasad.

Senior police officials including station in-charge of Sri Krishna Puri, Pataliputra, Sachivalaya, and Shastri Nagar police stations arrived at the scene to placate the angry mob. After nearly two hours, the crowd dispersed and the road was cleared for traffic.

Pataliputra police station in-charge Sanjiv Shekhar Jha said a case of missing person has been registered and the police was investigating the case from different angles.
