Parents of a 17-year-old girl from Bengaluru have sought public help in tracing their daughter who has been missing for about two months.

The girl, Anushka had left home on October 31 with just two pairs of clothes and Rs 2,500 in cash. She didn’t even carry her mobile phone.

The girl’s parents approached Subramanyanagar police after their search efforts did not yield any result. Her parents said that she was influenced by shamanism (a religious practice based on the belief that its practitioner interacts with spirits in an altered state of consciousness) and had been reading about the practice online.

As per reports, her parents believe that her decision to leave home was influenced by someone as she being a minor would not take a judgmental decision on her own

Media reports quote her parents saying that they observed behavioural changes in her in September and had even taken her for counselling.

“Anushka was a ‘regular teenager’ before certain changes were noticeable in her behaviour in September. She became reclusive and tended to avoid everybody.

I took her to a counsellor. The behavioural changes we saw was that she stopped talking to us. She was keeping to herself and restricted herself from household activities,” Anushka’s father told NDTV.

Meanwhile the police investigating the case are looking for some clues by examining CCTV camera footage from multiple locations.Bengaluru North’s Deputy Commissioner of Police Vinayak Patil confirmed that a forensic analysis of her online activities reveal that she was reading about shamanism. A special police team visited many places where spiritual activities and meditation are conducted but there has been no clue,” he added.

Meanwhile her parents have now appealed to public via a Twitter post for help in tracing their missing daughter.
