Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy arrived in Delhi on Monday evening after his family earlier claimed that he was untraceable until he emerged from the airport.

Mukul Roy is believed to have health issues for a while. Reportedly, he was seen at the Delhi airport with an escort. He told a reporter at the airport that he was in Delhi for some work.

Later when the reporter asked him about his health, Roy denied being there for health reasons and stated that he reached the national capital for some special work, stated a report in NDTV.

He also denied that he had come for any special political reason, amid speculation that he is planning to switch again, after returning to the Trinamool from the BJP in 2021.

Family claimed he was missing since last evening

The family members of senior TMC leader Mukul Roy claimed he was untraceable since late Monday evening.

The former railway minister's son Subhragshu told PTI that his father was untraceable and missing since late Monday evening. "Till now I am unable to contact my father. He is untraceable," Subhragshu, a TMC leader, said.

Roy's close aides claimed he had a flight scheduled in evening

Roy's close aides said he was scheduled to fly to Delhi Monday evening. "As of now we know that he was scheduled to land at Delhi Airport at around 9 pm. But he is not traceable," a close aide said.

Roy's political career

Roy, a former number two in the TMC, had joined BJP in 2017 following differences with the party leadership. He was made BJP national vice-president.

Roy won the 2021 assembly polls on a BJP ticket and later returned to the TMC after the results were announced.
