Jaipur: The IAS officer, who went missing
from a restaurant at Jaipur-Delhi national highway in Alwar
district, has remained untraceable so far, police said Wednesday.

Naveen Jain, a 2001 batch IAS officer, went missing
yesterday when he along with his wife and son were on their
way to New Delhi from Jaipur in a car.

been rushed to several places in New Delhi and Haryana in

The IAS officer hails from Haryana.
Jain, who was posted as commissioner in the settlement
department at Jaipur, had left a note in his car for his wife
Sunita and son Gautam regretting the fact that he had not been
able to provide them accommodation.

After registering a missing complaint with local
police station, his family returned to Jaipur last evening.

"There is no progress in the matter and the officer is
still missing. All the efforts are being made to locate him,"
Alwar SP Mahesh Goyal told PTI over phone.

Meanwhile, Jain`s wife claimed her husband was disturbed
due to a recent controversy over allotment of government
accommodation after he was transferred to Jaipur from Baran.

"My husband was given oral permission to stay in a
government residence here when we moved to Jaipur on August
15. We shifted in the house on August 16, but soon a
controversy started that our stay was in violation of rules,"
she said.

"There were certain circumstances due to which we were
given oral permission and the process to allot the
accommodation was on. We did not illegally occupied any
house," she told reporters.

Sunita said she yesterday met chief secretary S Ahmad
yesterday who assured her of all help in this regard.

Chief Secretary S Ahmad and Principal Secretary (General
Administration) Kiran Soni Gupta were not available for
comments.

Jain before his transfer was the district collector and
magistrate of Baran. He has also been district collector of
Karauli, Hanumangarh and Rajsamand districts.
