MISSING CHILD SURFACES AFTER 20 YEARS
UMAR MAQBOOL DAR
Rafiabad, Mar 4: A child of Rafiabad who allegedly went missing under mysterious circumstances from Raj Bagh area in Srinagar in 1990 has reportedly resurfaced.
Dar was eight years old when he went missing from his maternal home at Rajbagh. His family had searched for his whereabouts at all possible places but failed to locate him. Later, the family had blamed the paramilitary CRPF for his disappearance. He was even named as the youngest person till date to have disappeared in custody.
His father, Ghulam Hassan said a few days ago, a truck driver of Ladoora spotted a youth wandering at Lal Chowk. “The driver called me saying he looked like Javid. I rushed there but I have failed to recognize him yet. His maternal relations have recognized him from his identification marks. He is presently putting up with them,” Hassan said.
Javid used to live in Rajbagh, Srinagar with his grandfather, Abdul Aziz Bhat while his family continued to stay in Rafiabad. He attended Child Care Public School and had been last spotted playing at Chinar Bagh in Srinagar, near the foot bridge when he went missing on October 3, 1990.
Incidentally, Javid showed his family the spot from where he claimed to have been taken along by a “driver”. “He took me to various cities outside the state and I somehow reached back to Srinagar,” said relatives quoting Javid.
The family had even filed an FIR at the Rajbagh Police Station and filed a petition in the High Court “A JKLF cadre who had been detained at the Old airport interrogation centre had told us that he had seen a young boy there. His description matched with Javed perfectly,” his family had maintained. But his family couldn’t locate him.
