Darjeeling, 18 Nov: This is not happening for the first time in Darjeeling that Jamuna Subba and Sangita Rai from Badamtam, Darjeeling, have been missing since October 3. They were absconded from home after coaxing by two culprits Binay Tamang and Dorje Tamand alias Raju Tamang. After the active initiative of their parents, both culprits were arrested in Siliguri on October 15.

However, missing two girls have not yet been able to bring them back homes. Two girls have been expected to be sold in red-light areas by these two culprits. Hitherto, Siliguri police authorities have failed to produce any result, as well the network of this racket. Two culprits, Binay Tamand and Dorje Tamang are under Siliguri police custody.
