UMER MAQBOOL DAR
Kreeri (Varmul) Aug 2: It has been a desperate wait for this sobbing mother who wants to know whereabouts of her missing son from all the visitors to the house of Bukharis here.
Wailing and beating her chest, Zahida, mother of Faraq Bukhari who was allegedly picked up by police on Wednesday last during pro-freedom demonstrations is pleading to everyone for his return.
“Where are you my son? Where have these cruel men kept you imprisoned? I would break their jails to release you,” she screams holding the school back of her son.
Like Zahida, other members are helplessly seeking return of Faraq who disappeared during clashes at Choora.
The family alleged that police was involved in his disappearance as he was detained him during clashes at Choora.
Sareer Ahmed, his uncle quoting eyewitness told Greater Kashmir that after being beaten to pulp by police on Wednesday they bundled him (Faraq) in the Rakshak vehicle.
“One of our relative who accompanied him told us that he jumped out of the truck in which they were moving but Faraq couldn’t jump. On descending the cops surrounded him and whisked him away in Rakshak vehicle,” he said.
Sareer said they have searched for him in every police station, approached every official to get his whereabouts but of no help.
“We approached everybody including DIG, SSP Varmul, SP Sopur, DSP Pattan to trace his whereabouts, but they give only assurances,” he said.
“We have even provided the police IMEI number of his cell phone to help them in searching, but they are covering up the case,” he alleged.
Faraq’s disappearance has triggered widespread demonstrations here with people torching SOG camp two days back.
