New Delhi: A native of Kurali village in Karnal district went missing along with his family in Iwaki province in Japan after Friday's catastrophic earthquake and tsunami.

The whereabouts of Narinder Kumar, who owns a three-star hotel in Iwaki province, and his family members were not known. The Japanese Embassy in New Delhi has not been able to provide any information about the family.

Narinder Kumar had left India 13 years ago to get settled in Japan. His elder brother Keemti Lal told 'The Tribune' that the moment they came to know about the earthquake and the tsunami, they tried to contact Narinder, but could not reach him.

"We contacted the Japanese Embassy, but it failed to provide us any information about Narinder and his family members. However, we are in constant touch with the embassy officials," he said.

Keemti Lal said, "There are many persons from Kurali village in Japan and we have contacted them to trace Narinder and his family and inform us about his well-being, but so far we have not received any call."

Narinder had come to Karnal six years ago with his family, Keemti Lal disclosed. Narinder, his wife Maria and their three kids - Yash (11), Major (7) and Marish (5) have gone missing.

Iwaki is among the regions which have suffered colossal damage due to the quake.
