    In one of the most bewildering missing person incidents of India, Rahul Raju, a 7-year-old from Kerala, went missing in 2005. He was playing with a bunch of friends and was allegedly spotted with a bearded middle-aged man, before vanishing from the spot. The CBI has made multiple efforts to trace him, but they have been to no avail, yet.

    10. The isolated Andamanese islanders.

    The Sentinelese, or eponymously the North Sentinel Islanders, are a tribe who live on the North Sentinel Island — a part of the Andaman Islands. The catch? They refuse any contact with the outside world and react violently to those who do so. They were first peacefully contacted by Indian anthropologists in 1991 and there haven't been any other such instances since 1997. 

    The Sentinelese are hunter-gatherers and do not practice agriculture. They wear bark strings and necklaces, use canoes, and live in temporary huts. However, nothing is known about their language yet.
