Body found during search for missing Indian student

Wellington, Oct 18 (IANS) Police have recovered a body while searching for a missing Indian student in New Zealand, a media report said on Sunday.

The body, which is yet to be identified, was recovered from the Waitemata harbour near Auckland, about 12 km from where the 20-year-old culinary arts student was last seen.

Mandeep Singh went clubbing with his flatmates on October 10 when they lost contact with him in the Bungalow 8 nightclub around 3 a.m., the New Zealand Herald reported.

A police dive squad searched the Viaduct area but did not find Singh.

Senior sergeant Marcia Murray on Friday said police “know that Mandeep was seen in Queens Wharf just after 4 a.m. on Sunday and was alone at the time”.

“At this stage, unless further information is received, we are not treating his disappearance as suspicious,” she added.

Auckland police superintendent Richard Chambers on Sunday said a police team has located a body at Waitemata harbour.
