Chandigarh: A hotel owner and his family from Haryana's Kurali village have gone missing in Iwaki province of Japan since the day earthquake and tsunami hit the country.

Narinder Kumar, who owns a three-star hotel in Iwaki province, had left India 13 years ago to get settled in Japan.

Keemti Lal, the elder brother of Narinder Kumar said that the moment they came to know about the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami, they tried to contact Narinder, but to no avail.

"We contacted the Japanese Embassy, but it failed to provide us any information about Narinder and his family members," he said, adding that the family was in constant touch with the Embassy officials.

"We will go to the Embassy on Tuesday," he added.

Lal said that Narinder's friend Neeraj told them that his brother was bringing his children from a school when the tragedy struck.

"There are many persons from Kurali village in Japan and we have contacted them to trace Narinder and his family and inform us about his well being, but so far we have not received any call," he said.

Narinder, his wife and their three kids, Yash (11), Major (7), and Marish (5) have gone missing.
