Fashion designer ‘abducted’ from Noida, police search underway


Less than a fortnight after a Snapdeal executive was abducted from Ghaziabad, there are now reports of a fashion designer going missing under mysterious circumstances in neighbouring Noida in Uttar Pradesh

Shipra Malik was allegedly abducted on Monday with her car found abandoned 500 m from her residence in Sector 37.

According to New Indian Express, the police helpline 100 was dialed from her mobile phone. The duration of the call was just 10 seconds and she did not speak anything.

Shipra’s husband, Chetan Malik lodged a complaint of abduction at the Noida police station.

The police have dispatched teams to Lajpat Nagar which was the last known location of the fashion designer.

Married to a construction company owner, Malik runs a boutique in Noida.

Noida’s Superintendent of Police, Dinesh Yadav said, “A missing person’s report has been filed. The police are investigating whatever her family are providing in writing. She is being searched for. She used to run a boutique in Chandni Chowk.”

Police said the victim had met her husband at Brahmputra market in Sector 29, just after leaving house on Monday afternoon. At that time her husband’s younger brother Sharad was with him.

 According to Times of India, 29-year-old fashion designer had asked to go to Chandi Chowk for some work. She asked her husband to accompany her but left alone as her husband had some prior commitments.

Between 3 pm to 3.30 pm on Monday, Chetan called Shipra but her mobile phone was switched off. While returning home, Chetan noticed her car abandoned near house. The car doors were ajar. Car keys were found on the car mat.
