‘Missing’ Daughter Of Nepal Mayor Found In North Goa; Know What Happened

Panjim: Two day after being reported missing, Aarti Hamal, daughter of Mayor of Nepal’s Dhangadhi Sub-Metropolitan city Gopal Hamal, was found at a hotel in North Goa’s Mandrem, authorities said on Wednesday.

Goa police had registered a case and launched a search operation on the basis of complaint lodged by her family, alleging that she had been missing since Monday.

A follower of Osho meditation, Aarti had been residing in Goa for several months. She was last seen near Ashvem Bridge on Monday evening.

Gopal Hamal had then appealed for assistance to locate his daughter. “My elder daughter, Aarti, is an Osho meditator who has been living in Goa for a few months. However, I have received a message from her friend stating that she has lost contact with Aarti Zorba Vibes Ashwem Breeze since yesterday. I humbly request that those who live in Goa assist in the search for my daughter, Aarti,” he posted on X.

“Also, my younger daughter Aarzoo and son-in-law are flying to Goa tonight to look for our elder daughter Aarti,” he added.

The family had also provided contact numbers to aid in the search.

Arzoo, in a social media post, had also mentioned that they received numerous calls with information about possible sightings of Aarti near a bridge in Siolim. “We have received more than 500 calls since we left from Nepal to Lucknow. We are still getting calls even post midnight. Some of the people have been very helpful and we are eternally grateful to them,” she said in a Facebook post.

“Some callers suggested she was taken to a hospital after being found unconscious, while others believed she was taken to a police station.  Our well-wishers who have reached out and are trying to help have been looking in hospitals and police stations in and around that area. But nothing has really been clear so far,” she added.

Arzoo also confirmed that a First Information Report (FIR) was filed with the Goa Police in relation to the case.
