ANANTNAG: Mysterious disappearance of a kid sparked protests in Anantnag district of South Kashmir on Tuesday.
Four year old Ayaan Hamid Wani disappeared from the premises of a relative in Baibugh, Pehroo area of Anantnag where his mother had gone to see her relatives. Family members of the child said that he had gone outside the house for a moment when he went missing.
The mysterious disappearance of the child sparked protests as people blocked vehicular movement on Pahalgam-Anantnag road. Police rushed to spot and pacified the protesters with a surety that they will find the kid.
“Mother of the child went rushing outside when she heard him calling. But once outside, he was nowhere to be seen,” Jan Mohammad, a relative of the child told Kashmir Reader.
This was the second such incident where a kid has disappeared in the district. Earlier, a two year old girl disappeared mysteriously from Seer Hadmdan area of the district and even after a month, police has failed to trace him.
Police has lodged a missing report and investigation has been taken up to locate the whereabouts of the missing kid. Police, however said that nothing can be said as what actually happened with the child.
“We can’t jump to the conclusions. It may be a case of kidnapping or drowning as a stream is flowing at a little distance from the house,” a police official told Kashmir Reader. He said that police is investigating the incident from all possible angles.
