Missing Doordarshan official returns home?


A senior official of Doordarshan, who was reportedly missing from New Delhi area, today returned home from a shrine in Rajasthan where he had gone without informing his family, police said.

Jayant Kharche, posted as DDG (Deputy Director General) in the engineering department of Doordarshan, returned home today at 5 PM after paying obeisance at Khichripur Balaji shrine in Rajasthan, a senior police officer said.

“Kharche is a loner and is slightly eccentric. He left for the shrine without informing his family or office colleagues and returned today,” he said.

Kharche, who was missing since September 16, had left for a meeting from his office around noon and had decided to walk to the venue since it was nearby, the officer said.

But he didn’t reach there and his phone was found to be switched off following which his family had filed a missing complaint, he added.
