A former state-level cricketer associated with the Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) has been reported missing in Vadodara on Tuesday afternoon. Mittal Saraiya, 51, who has been living in Florida, USA, came to Vadodara five days ago to meet his ailing uncle.
On Tuesday afternoon, Mittal had gone to the ICICI bank at Amrapali complex in Karelibaug area of the city to open a new bank account. However, he did not return home and repeated attempts to reach him on his phone went in vain, and his phone was later switched off, the police said.
A missing person complaint was lodged at the Karelibaug police station late on Tuesday night. “We have begun investigating the matter but we are yet to get any leads. As per the CCTV footage of the complex, he had boarded an auto rickshaw towards his home and we are trying to track the auto based on the CCTV footage,” said JD Taral, investigating officer.
