However, in the jostling while the family was coming out of the temple, Kunja Biksham got separated from the rest of the family.

He remained untraced for a long time leading to his wife Kunja Venkataramana lodging a complaint with the police. A search to locate the former MLA is on. The former MLA was suffering from some health issues for some time.
