Srinagar: The family of the missing scholar from Srinagar, who went missing in June this year, yet again staged a protest demanding a CBI probe and appealed Director General of Police to help them to get their son back.
Hilal Ahmed Dar, from Bemina area of Srinagar, who was pursuing PhD, went missing on June 14 during a trekking expedition to high altitude Naranag in central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district.
While his four other friends returned home the same evening, Dar did not.
The family said that Dar was an “honest, dedicated and a responsible person.”
Police had claimed that Dar has joined militant ranks, a claim vehemently refuted by family.
The family members emerged in Press Enclave Srinagar on Sunday and staged a peaceful protest, demanding CBI probe into the missing incident.
“We appeal to the Lieutenant Governor, Director General of Police and the Central Government to help us in tracing him. “He was innocent and not involved in any unlawful activity,” the family said.
Nisar Ahmed, the maternal uncle of Hilal Ahmed told Kashmir News Trust that they have spent over Rs 1 lakh to trace the missing scholar. “We even offered cash to trekkers but so for they are unable to find him,” he said.
“We die every day in his absence and that moment is very painful for us when any news of any dead body found in any area reaches to us,” Nisar Ahmed said.
“We will be highly obliged and thankful if the government helps us so that a highly educated and disciplined student is allowed to lead a dignified and respectable life. We want a CBI probe so that reason behind his disappearance comes to fore,” the protesting family members said. KNT
