A 21-year-old journalist is untraceable after he visited the famous Haji Malang shrine in neighbouring Kalyan, police said.
Sannidh Poojari, who is a resident of Amar Nagar in suburban Mulund and works with a city-based English daily, left his home at around 2 PM yesterday with his friends for the shrine and has not returned yet.
A police official said Poojari has not informed anyone about his whereabouts so far and his mobile phone is also switched off.
Haji Malang or ‘Malanggad’ is located about 15 km from Kalyan railway station in adjoining Thane district. The shrine has been drawing pilgrims and trekkers alike.
A missing person complaint has been registered with Mulund police and efforts are on to trace him.
