Srinagar, Dec 10 (GNS): Hours after his family staged a protest alleging their son has gone missing from Aligarh, the youth reached Sopore in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Saturday.
Youth’s father, Mohammad Abbas, told GNS that his son Masroor Abbas Mir, a 10th standard student at AMU, told them that he reached Banihal in a truck and thereafter he boarded a train to Sopore.
“His phone had got switched off and soon after de-boarding at the Sopore railway station, he called his cousin from somebody’s phone and the family received him,” he said, adding, “We straight away took him along to the local police station and informed them about the development.”
Earlier in the day, the family members and relatives of the student, a resident of Bohripora Sopore, staged the protest in the apple town and sought his whereabouts as they had lost contact with him for the past three days.
Soon after the protest, a police official told GNS that the family has been assured of all possible help to trace the boy as soon as possible.
When contacted, an Uttar Pradesh police official told GNS that “the boy has gone somewhere on his own”. “We have checked the CCTV footage which suggests the movement of the boy near a railway station”, the official said. “It presumably seems he has gone somewhere on his own”, he said. (GNS)
