Souvik Pal
London, Jan 23: London police overruled the reports which claimed that 18-year-old Souvik Pal, a student from Bangalore, was attacked by any unknown or known person(s). Souvik, who was missing since Dec 31, has been found dead.

Speaking about Souvik's mysterious death, police officials were quoted as saying, "We do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances surrounding Souvik's death and a file will be submitted to the coroner in due course."

"Our thoughts and condolences are with Souvik's family at this devastating time and our officers are doing all they can to support them," the officials added.

Souvik was last seen at the event at Warehouse Project in Trafford, Greater Manchester, around 11 pm and was reported missing by his roommate on Jan 1.

He was a student of Manchester Metropolitan University and was found dead by specialist officers in Bridgewater Canal near the Old Trafford football ground in Manchester United at 2 pm. His father, Shantanu Pal, had travelled from his home in Bangalore to help the police in finding his son.

A number of appeals had been made to trace Pal including the use of digital advertising hoardings at one of Manchester United's home football matches against Liverpool. Pal had trained for a part-time job of serving refreshments at the stadium and also served during the home team's match against West Bromwich Albion on Dec 29.

The student's mother had lambasted the Indian government a few days ago, alleging that the latter showed a lackadaisical attitude towards the family's plight.
