“Bhubaneswar, 24/9: They became friends on Facebook. Continued to chat daily for hours, spent lots of time in online communication and finally loved each other. After some more days they passed their mobile phone numbers and talked to each other. One day they planned to meet and chose a private guesthouse in Chandrasekharpur region as the spot.
As they say Rahul (the boy) is a B. Tech. Student of a private engineering college in Bhubaneswar. Reena (the girl) too is an engineering student of a private college near Dhenkanal, about 75 KMs away from Bhubaneswar.
At about 10 am they arrived at the guesthouse. Talked for a few minutes in the booked room and Rahul went to a nearby shop for getting some snacks. After returning the room Rahul did not find the girl. Checked his laptop, but it was missing.
The helpless boy enquired the case at the reception but got no sign of relief. Tried to contact Reena but got no response as the cell phone was switched off. From a nearby cyber cafe he then sent an email to Reena’s email account and tried hard to contact her college. The result was the fruitless.
He finally got to know that Reena’s Facebook id was just a fake. She is not a student of that college at all. Now he is searching for that girl with the help of some friends.”
