A year on, Kashmiri Man Missing In Bihar Still Untraced


Srinagar: A family from North Kashmir’s Bandipora district alleged that despite knocking at the gates of police station, police didn’t show any interest in tracing out one of the family members who went missing a year ago in Eastern Indian state of Bihar.

 “Manzoor Ahmed Teli a resident of Mirgund Pattan cajoled and coaxed my son Ghulam Mohiuddin last year and he took him to Bihar with a promise to provide him a job. Six months later Manzoor returned back to Valley and informed us that Mohiuddin went missing in Bihar. After waiting for a month, we lodged a complaint in police station Sumbal against Manzoor, however, police released him without investigating the case,” the elderly mother of missing person who hails from Markundal Sonawari area told news agency CNS.

 “It has been a year and I have no information about my son,” she added.

When contacted SDPO Sumbal Rashid Akbar said that they are in touch with Bihar police and a missing report already stands registered in a police station in Bihar. “Investigation revealed that Mohiuddin got lost and Manzoor looked for him everywhere. After failing to trace he returned back to Valley,” he said and added that they are in constant touch with Bihar police. (CNS)
