GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 7: Abdul Ahad Rah, 70, of Sheikh Mohalla Mahraj Gunj has appealed Prime Minister of India to help him in tracing his two sons, who went missing allegedly after handed over by Nepal police to Indian authorities in 2000.
For past 11-years, elderly Rah has been running from pillar to post to trace his two sons Mushtaq Ahmad and Muhammad Shafi, who were into leather business in Kathmandu.
Narrating his woeful story, he says his two sons were taken into custody along with 25 others in September 2000 by Nepal Police.
“They released 10 persons after interrogating them including my sons. They were handed over to Indian authorities. Till date I don’t know their whereabouts,” he said.
“I was told by Nepal Police that my sons were handed over to Indian officials. But I was shocked when Jodhpur jail authorities feigned ignorance about them,” he added.
“I also visited jails of other states to trace them but failed to locate them,” he said.
Rah also approached Chief Minister Omar Abdullah a few months back, but to no avail. “I also met him at his public durbar and pleaded him to locate my two sons. But since then, there has been no response from his side. I appeal Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to help me to locate my sons,” he said.
