Dehra Dun: Efforts are on to trace Prathap Uburai, a marketing faculty member of IIM-Ahmedabad, who went missing three days ago from Devprayag in Uttarakhand's Tehri district, police said here on Sunday.

Besides searching hotels and inns, police have pressed into service rafts in Devprayag, the confluence of Alaknanda and Bhagirathi rivers, to trace the missing official.

Uburai, aged 42, went missing from a hotel after he allegedly tried to commit suicide.

"We are presuming he has either become a sanyasi or has jumped into river Ganga," said a police officer investigating the matter.

He said a couple of hours before Uburai went missing, he had tried to jump into the river Ganga at Devprayag.

However, on the intervention of his two nephews, Uburai did not commit suicide but kept talking about taking sanyas.

Uburai, a father of two, has also served as Director of the National Insurance Academy at Pune.
