Hyderabad: A traffic e-challan reunited a Hyderabad family with their missing son in Zaheerabad district of Telangana after three years.

Mullapudi Satish, a techie who had left home to take up farming was united with his parents and wife after a long haunt. Thanks to Telangana police's e-ticket application.

It so happened that Malapudi Satish, a software employee by profession wasn't happy with his job for reasons best known to him. He aspired to be a farmer. In 2017, he left home without informing his parents or wife. The couple was residing in Madinaguda of Hyderabad. Following this, the family lodged a missing complaint at KPHB police station in 2017. Since then the haunt for Satish was on.

Special teams were deputed to trace him but to no avail. Years passed by and the family continued to search for there son who cut all social contacts.

But, it was destined for Satish to meet his parents again.

In August 2020, when Telangana was placed under lockdown 3, the Zaheerabad town police slapped a traffic violation against Satish, who was on his two-wheeler travelling from the bus stop to his home. The cops fined him for not wearing a mask. His details including the man's picture and vehicle number were uploaded on the Telangana State Police E-ticket application.


A few days ago, one of Satish's relatives while checking for bike challans on the portal found his picture and informed the family members. Based on the e-ticket, police found it was issued at Zaheerabad police station in Sangareddy district. The family reached out to Sub Inspector N Venkat of Zaheerabad Police station.

Speaking to NewsMeter, the Sub Inspector who appears to be happy for the reunion said, 'The family called me seeking details for their son. I managed to get his current contact number. However, on our end, we verified the details and the picture and matched it with the 2017 missing complaint. In order to get him to the police station, I informed him that there is a challan and he can get it compounded in the Lok Adalat. And if he doesn't, Satish would have to pay Rs 5000 instead of Rs 500.

He further added, "When Satish came to the police station, we handed him over to the family. He was shocked to see his elderly father," N Venkat Sub-inspector Zaheerabad told NewsMeter.


Satish and his wife were working for software firms, but he had a passion for farming and agriculture. He left home in 2017 and isolated himself from family members and relatives.L

Later he purchased 10 acres of land at Zaheerabad and started cultivation. During August, when he was on his way to the farm on his bike, police found him without a mask and helmet and issued a challan for violating rules.
