Candlelight vigil for missing Merchant navy officer in Gurgaon
It goes without saying that it becomes difficult on the family when a person goes missing and the same is true for the family of the missing merchant navy officer Kishore Matta. Three months after his disappearance in Myanmar, the family of this merchant navy officer, went on a candlelight vigil in Gurgaon from Tau Devi Lal stadium to Subhash Chowk.

The family of this 34 year old Merchant navy, who lives in Gurgaon is not happy with the way the Government is handling the matter and the candlelight vigil was to demand from the government to do something on the matter. He has been missing since April 18 from a cargo vessel Greatship Maya, which was at the time stationed in Myanmar.

The candlelight vigil was attended by family and friends of Matta as well as around 200 merchant navy officials. A social organisation by the name of Parivartan Sangh also joined them and protested against the inaction of the government in the search of Matta.

As was reported by, Rakesh Daultabad of Parivartan Sangh said, "If Matta is alive, he should be brought back safely. In case of a mishap, the government should make serious efforts to deliver justice to his family.'' The family of the missing person wants to meet the Prime Minister. They also said that the Gurgaon Police has not been taking interest in the case stating that the case belongs to the external affairs ministry.

When the family visited Singapore in search of Matta, their queries were met with unsatisfactory responses.
