KARACHI:


Two months have gone by since two-year-old Azizur Rehman went missing but the Hyderi Market police have failed to make any headway in the investigations.


The boy’s grandfather, who is the watchman of former city Nazim, Niamatullah Khan, said that the boy went missing from outside his residence in North Nazimabad’s Block-F on July 28.  The report of the incident was formally registered with the Hyderi Market police, but not before September 9.

“The police had refused to register a formal report till the passage of 30 days and insisted that an entry in their daily register would suffice for their investigations,” said Safiur Rehman, the grandfather.

The investigation officer, Ghulam Mustafa Rajper, however, blamed the family for registering the formal report after more than a month. He said  the CCTV footage from a camera installed nearby showed an unidentified woman arriving in a CNG rickshaw and taking the child. “We haven’t been able to identify the woman or where she took the boy,” said Rajper.

Rehman requested people to contact at the following numbers in case of any information regarding the missing child: 0342 2286 687, 0347 3994 078 and 0341 2242 499.  Meanwhile, the former city nazim also appealed to the government and the relevant officials to take effective steps in rescuing his watchman’s grandson.
