Father craves for sons' return
Srinagar, Jan 20: The 70-yr-old Abdul Ahad Rah’s wait is endless till he breathes his last as he is craving for his sons to return. Abdul Ahad said that his two sons along with 27 other persons were arrested in Nepal on September 8, 2000 and then brought to India. His sons were doing business in Nepal where they were arrested. He said 10 persons were released among the 27 and but 17 others including his two sons were not released. Rah has visited almost every jail and knocked every door to find information about his sons. Last year Rah filed an application with the Deputy Commissioner Srinagar’s office seeking state administration help to locate his two sons. On March 3, 2009, the Deputy Commissioner Srinagar took the cognizance of the letter and took sympathetic note of it. In the letter, Deputy Commissioner said that that Abdul Ahad, father of two sons, has become desperate and is running from the pillar to post since August 2000 while seeking information about his sons. “During these eight years the old man has lost everything. It is requested that steps be taken to seek information about the location of the two young men so that the old father could at least meet them,” the letter said. Sources said the Director General of Police CID Jammu and Kashmir vide letter CID/R/SHR-20/2009 has furnished information about the two persons Mushtaq Ahmad Rah and Muhammad Shafi Rah to the Deputy Commissioner’s office. “Before my death I want to see my sons. Please help me to find out them,” he says. Deputy Commissioner Srinagar Meraj Kakru said his office would provide all kind of necessary help to the aged father.
