|Vishal Mehrotra: Father Wants Murder Case Reopened|
MP's support call to investigate 1981 murder
Eight year old Vishal Mehrotra lived in Putney when he vanished while out with his sister and nanny on 29th July 1981, (the day of the marriage of Lady Diana and Prince Charles). A few months later his body was found on Sussex marshland. His father says he was contacted by a male prostitute at the time who revealed the boy might have been abducted and murdered at the notorious Elm Guest House in neighbouring Barnes.
Mr Mehrotra continued:"What is apparent to me is that from the document that I have seen now that there are too many questions that they need to answer rather than answers in this document."
Mr Mehrotra says he now wants police to reopen the investigation into his son's death: "I feel that the time for closure is well past, and they [the police] should be doing their job thoroughly and properly and now with forensics and the way it has advanced, I believe that if they reinvestigated Vishal’s murder, maybe something concrete will come about. That is important to me."
