SHOPIAN: Younger brother of an IPS officer who is missing from 26 of May likely have joined militant ranks while his family said that they are searching their son.
Shamas-ul-Haq Nengroo son of Rafiq Ahmad Mengnoo according to family is missing from May 26 after he went to college from his rented house in Srinagar. Rafiq Ahmad told Kashmir Reader that his son was studying BUMS course at Institute of Asian Medical Science (Unani) Zakura Srinagar.
“Four days before he goes missing, he visited home at Dragad (Sugan) in Shopian but on May 26 when he left his Srinagar rented room, we have no contact with him despite several tries on phone,” he said, adding that on May 12, Shamas-ul-Haq took Rs 75,000 from home for tuition fees but he has not submitted that amount in the college.
“I have not filed any missing report yet in any police station. I am searching him and wants him to come back home,” Mengnoo father of missing youth said.
Family members said that 21-year-old Haq was good at studies and was about to complete his medical course within four months.
They said that Rafiq didn’t filed any report yet but he verbally contacted police after he got a call from a police officer regarding whereabouts of his son. “I want to tell him if he has joined militants, come back home because this is not wise step which you took. You have elderly parents at home,” Mengnoo said.
“One youth from our village has given photograph that he has joined militants but my son didn’t do so yet and I hope he may have not joined and he will return home,” he said.
Sources from the area said that he may have joined militant ranks.
Rafiq Ahmad Mengnoo is the head of that family in whose house seven militants and a civilian was killed on April 1 this year.
