Srinagar- The family members and relatives of a missing fruit trader from Sopore on Tuesday held a protest demonstration at Press enclave and demanded his whereabouts at the earliest.
The family members of the man, identified as Ghulam Nabi Naikoo of Achabal Rafiabad, assembled here to seek the whereabouts of their missing kin.
Haji Mohammad Naikoo, brother of the missing man said that his brother is a businessman, who was working as a trader at fruit mandi Sopore.
“He had gone to Shopian for some business deal with a dealer from Calcutta two months ago, but since then he did not return home. When we tried to contact him, his phone location was at Bisu, Anantnag and not in Shopian. Since then, his phone has been switched off and he has not returned home for the last two months and ten days,” he said.
He added that they have filed a missing report at the police station but so far there is no trace of him. “We went to Anantnag and Shopian to trace him but could not get any lead about his whereabouts.”
Meanwhile, the family members urged LG Manoj Sinha to personally intervene into this matter and help them trace their kin.
“He has two little children and he is the sole bread earner for his family. We appeal to the LG to help us trace him as soon as possible,” family members said.
