Kupwara driver goes missing
Locals stage protests demand whereabouts
Kupwara, Aug 8: Scores of people took to the streets at Batergam here on Monday to protest the failure of police to locate a driver from the area who went missing nearly three weeks ago.
Protesters raising anti-police slogans staged a sit-in on Kupwara- Chowkibal road and blocked the vehicular movement for more than three hours.
Fayaz Ahmad Lone Son of Ghulam Nabi Lone of Tangwari Gulgam Kupwara, according to his family members, left from Kupwara to Jammu in his Tata Sumo (No. JK09-6670) on July 18.
“He was in touch with us till July 19. Since then his mobile is switched off and we don’t know what happened to him,” said the family members.
Protestors alleged that Police had done nothing to locate Fayaz. “He is missing for over three weeks and police are clueless. We do not know whether he is dead or alive. On our part, we tried everything to trace him but to no avail. Police must intensify search to locate him at the earliest,” said his relative.
He said that Fayaz may have been murdered by goons and vehicle stolen.
Later police reached on the spot and pacified the protesters. Police officials assured them that search to locate the missing driver would be intensified.
