AJMER: Thirteen days after a 21-year-old Frenchwoman, Gaelle Chouteau, allegedly went missing from Pushkar, her friends posted about the disappearance on social media on Wednesday. Police were pressed into action after the posts came to their notice, said Ajmer SP Rajender Singh.
Apart from mentioning that Gaelle has short hair, the posts stated that she had last contacted her friends on May 31, after which she apparently left Pushkar for Jaipur. Gaelle’s friends even approached external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on social media and sought her help in locating the missing tourist, besides appealing to people to help find Gaelle.
The online appeals have gone viral, prompting other tourists to demand an investigation into the Frenchwoman’s disappearance. Police have received no formal complaint but are trying to trace Chouteau in Ajmer and Pushkar.
