Ameya Santosh, a grade 10 student of DPS School in Sharjah, went missing after he went for tuition class on Friday morning. According to UAE newspaper, Gulf News, he suffers from exam phobia.
His mother, Bindu Santosh, told the newspaper: “His father had dropped him. I had messaged his tutor to let me know when the class gets over around 12 noon. But he said Ameya didn’t reach the class. When we checked the CCTV we found that he didn’t enter the building.
“I think he might have decided not to come home so that he could skip the exam.”
The 15-year-old was spotted by another student in Dubai’s La Mer on Sunday afternoon. Ameya called his father from the other boy’s mobile, his father Santosh Rajan told Gulf News.
