Jalandhar, Sep 8 (UNI) Prominent Punjabi singer, Nachhatar Gill has lodged a complaint with the local police that a member of his musical troupe disappeared in Canada when they were there for a performance tour.
In his report, Mr Gill said that a 10-member troupe apart from his family members went to Canada in July this year where a guitarist, identified as Vijay, a local resident disappeared from his hotel room on August 15. He did not return back to India with the rest of the troupe, which came back to India on September two.
He claimed that the Canadian immigration department had been informed of the missing member before the troupe left for home.
SSP, Pawan Kumar Rai when contacted today confirmed the receipt of the complaint and said that Mr Sarabjit Singh, a Superintendent of Police (SP) has been asked to conduct an inquiry in the case.
In his complaint, Mr Gill revealed that he along with his troupe members went to Canada for a commercial show on July 26, but he was compelled to return home due to his fathers death on August 12. But his co-singer, Ms Manju Mahal stayed back in Canada to fulfill their commitments.
Mr Gill said that he had undertaken a number of such tours to foreign countries and each time on his return he made it a point to produce the members of his troupe before embassy officials of the countries that they had visited. " But this incident will be a blot on my reputation", he stated in his complaint while calling for an investigation.
