PANAJI: Goa police today rescued an 87-year-old man who was allegedly kept locked inside a room for the last two years by his family members.
Sadanand Vaingankar, resident of St Cruz village near here, was rescued from his own house by a team of officials from the Old Goa Police station this afternoon in the presence of members of NGO Savera.
One of Vaingankar’s friends had filed a complaint in this regard.
“One of his friends found him living in pitiable conditions in his own house, locked in a room by his own sons,” a senior police officer said.
Mr Vaingankar, who was active in his social circles, suddenly disappeared two years ago, which led to his friends suspecting that something was amiss.
