In his latest effort to find his missing son, a 45-year-old man of Mizorams Vairengte Wednesday knocked on the state home minister R Lalzirliana’s door. Chungrothanga told the home minister to initiate a fresh investigation into the case of his son, who then 11 years old, went missing in 2000. Chungrothangas son Shillongthanga was allegedly taken away by Lt Col Kulwan Singh, the then administrative officer at the Counter Insurgency and Jungle Welfare School (CIJWS), Vairengte, with the permission of the parents, as a domestic help and with the promise that he would enroll the boy into the army, once he attained eligible age. As the father never heard either from his son or the army officer for years, he approached human rights activist Vanramchhuangi, who further helped him approach concerned authorities, such as the National Human Rights Commission. Later, a Guwahati-based advocate filed a Public Interest Litigation at the Guwahati High Court, which had ordered a CBI inquiry. The CBI started investigation from October, 2007. It assured him that they would help him get an ex-gratia if his son was no more alive. However, as he did not hear anything from the CBI since then, he has decided to meet the home minister.
