The two police constables Lucknow Police had deputed for his security lodged a complaint in this regard at Thakurganj police station yesterday, nearly a month after the youth disappeared.
Sachan is a witness in two cases filed against Asaram in Jodhpur and Ahmedabad and another case against Narayan Sai in Surat.
In the past, too, several witnesses have either been attacked or killed. Nine witnesses have been attacked so far and three of them have died.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajesh Kumar Pandey said here today that a probe has been ordered in this connection.
Circle Officer, Police Lines, Pratap Gopendra Yadav has been asked to probe the matter and he would also verify security personnel statement, in which he claimed he had left Sachan at Qaiserbagh bus station.
The SSP said that security personnel had claimed that Sachan had developed a habit of leaving for undisclosed locations for a few days without intimating him. He would call once he returned. But this time he did not return and his cellphone too remained switched off.
A resident of Kanpur, Sachan was living on rent in Lucknows Thakurganj area since October last. Mohammad Arif, his landlord, Sachan had told me that he is a doctor practising Ayurvedic medicine. He used to live alone. He has not returned here since November 25 and his portion of the house is locked.
