Bandipora: Gone to trace a missing sheep from his herd, a shepherd has not returned home even after 11 days. The 25-year-old Ghulam Nabi Sheikh who took care of a herd of sheep in Bandipora went missing on Sunday morning two weeks back, after he went out in search of the missing sheep from his herd.
Sheikh’s relatives said that he was constantly looking for the missing sheep, fearing the consequences of its owner, in Zalwaan area of Bandipora. “After looking for it for three days he couldn’t find the sheep but he didn’t give up” his cousin Zubair said.
A massive search launched by his relatives around the marshy area of Zalwaan, has proven futile even after 11 days, however, the sheep he was searching for was found but Sheikh remains untraced. Even police is left clueless.
