Rafiabad protests youth's disappearance

UMER MAQBOOL

Srinagar, Mar 16: Massive protests broke out in Rafiabad area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district Wednesday against the disappearance of a local youth.
Early morning hundreds of youth, raising pro-freedom and anti-government slogans, staged massive demonstrations at Ladoora Rafiabad demanding the whereabouts of Muhammad Yaseen Mir who is missing for the past two weeks.
Accusing police of failing to locate the youth, the protesters blocked Handwara-Baramulla road for more than two hours. Later, cops baton-charged the protesters forcing them to disperse.
The family of Yaseen told Greater Kashmir that the youth is missing from March 2, after somebody called him on his father’s phone.
“He received a call on my cellphone on the fateful evening and went outside home, but did not return. We grew anxious and later lodged report in Sopore police station, but till date they have failed to provide any clue about the boy,” Ghulam Nabi Mir, father of the youth said.
When contacted, DIG North Kashmir, Muneer Ahmed Khan said police was investigating the case.
“We have taken cognizance of the matter and questioned few people in connection with the case. We are also analyzing his call details,” he said.
