Khattak seeks FO intervention for missing child return
PESHAWAR—Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pervez Khattak Thursday asked Pakistan Foreign Ministry to contact the Indian authorities and help reunite the missing child from Charsadda with his family.
On the recommendation of the Special Assistant on Information and PR, Mushtaq Ahmad Ghani, Parvez Khattak Wednesday wrote the Foreign Office that the 7-years old child Tufail Ismail s/o Zafar Ali from district Charsadda who was missing since June 6, 2014 has been noticed on Social Media in Indian state of Rajasthan and his details as per media reports could be collected from Ganga Nagar police station.
An FIR in respect of the disappearance of this child was already registered in Prang (Charsadda) Police Station but the family seemed to be very poor and might find them-selves helpless to reach their child particularly in far away India.
However, the Chief Minister said that it was the duty of the government to help reunite the child with his family. He has also directed the local civil administration to remain in touch with the said family so that any further details required to the Foreign Office could be instantly provided to it.
Mr. Ghani had also attached the clipping from daily Dawn May 29, 2015 along-with its link and pictures of the said child in his letter written to the Chief Minister. The clipping and link too were sent to the Foreign Office by the later.
