Srinagar, Nov 30: A family from North Kashmir’s Sopore area today protested here, requesting information on the whereabouts of a trader who has been missing from his home for months.
Family members gathered at the Press Enclave to inquire about the whereabouts of their kin who had been missing for the past two months. They have asked the police and other relevant organizations to find the missing trader since his family and relatives are worried.
According to family members, Gulam Nabi Naiko, an apple dealer from Sopore’s Achabal Rafiabad area, went to Shopian District in South Kashmir by train two months ago for fruit business but has been untraceable since then.
They said that since then, his phone is off and that they had no idea where he had gone. “He traveled to Shopian via train on September 22nd, but he hasn’t been seen since. The police should put up more effort to find the missing trader”, a family member said.
The family members said they have filed a missing person complaint with the police station. “We went to Anantnag and Shopian to look for him, but we were unable to find any information about his whereabouts”, a family member said.
Meanwhile, family members have urged LG Manoj Sinha to personally intervene in the case and assist them in locating their relatives. “He is the primary breadwinner for the family and has two small children. We are pleading with the LG to assist us in locating him as soon as possible”, another family member said.
