Sadaf’s father Mirza Abdul Baig and his relatives also suspect that the girl might have jumped into the Kharkai and her body might have been flown away in the heavy current of the river.
A resident of Bagan Sahee in Mango, Sadaf is a student of Government Women’s Polytechnic in Gamharia. She had on Thursday come to the polytechnic, but a college bag that was found lying on the Adityapur toll bridge that led the police to detect that it was that of the girl.

Sub-inspector Chandra Bhushan of Adityapur police station said they have registered a entry in connection to the missing of the teen-aged girl.
“We made an entry on the statement made by the girl’s father Abdul Baig. We are suspecting that the girl might have committed suicide by jumping into the Kharkai, but unless we find her body we cannot conclude it to be a suicide case,” said Chandra Bhushan.
