Arrest of LoC trader torments family
Baramulla, Jan 23: Arrest of a youth associated with the LoC trade by Mumbai police recently has tormented the Naikoo family in old town, here.
According to reports, Farooq Ahmad Naikoo alias Farooq Tendulkar son of late Ghulam Hassan Naikoo of Khawja Sahib, Old Town, here was picked up by Mumbai police on January 16 from a shop in sector 19, Vashi where he had been working as a commission agent for dry fruit with a local Mumbaikar namely Mehboob Alam for the past one year.
"We came to know of his arrest after a Kashmiri businessman informed us over phone. We contacted his friend Mehboob Alam in Mumbai, who said he did not know why Farooq was arrested" said Wahid Naikoo, brother of the arrested youth.
According to family members, Farooq started LoC trade a year back and headed for Mumbai for better business opportunity in dry fruit business.
"He was in constant touch with the family members and was happy with his progress," said Wahid.
Meanwhile, the family is fearing their son may be implicated in some false case ahead of R-Day. Curiously, the family has suffered earlier also when, according to them, Farooq’s father was arrested by the military intelligence way back in 1984. “Two days after his arrest his body was handed over to us,” they said.
"My arrested son became orphan at the age of just 7 years after his father was killed in the captivity of military intelligence in Baramulla some 28 years back. We are helpless people and request authorities here to intervene in the matter and make his release possible."
"The arrest of my son has shattered us and more worrying factor for us is that Mumbai police may implicate him in any subversive activities especially ahead of January 26," said Hafeez, 60 year old mother of arrested youth, who is suffering from multiple ailments.
A police official on condition of anonymity confirmed that the Police had received a communication from the Mumbai police regarding the arrest of Baramulla youth. However, he refused to reveal further details.
