Chennai: Senior leader of Tamil Nadu unit of
CPI (M) and a former Central Commitee member W R Varadarajan
has been missing for the past one week, the party said today.

State unit Secretary G Ramakrishnan said Varadarajan had
left his home on February 11 leaving two unsigned letters.

`It is not clear where he has gone but it (his
disappearance) is a matter of concern,` Ramakrishnan said in a
party statement here.

The party has lodged a complaint with the City Police
Commissioner as well as the state DGP, he added.

It is learnt that Varadarajan, a senior leader who used to
play the interpreter`s role to near perfection in meetings
addressed by national leaders of the party, was beset by
personal problems, which, it is believed, could have made him
take the step.
