Every morning, Nazir Ahmed Badoo leaves his guest house in Shalimar Bagh and travels to random places with his son's photo.
This has been his daily routine since November 9, when his 20-year-old son Muneeb Gul went mysteriously missing from east Delhi’s Mayur Vihar.With the police allegedly doing little, Badoo, a businessman, has no other option left but to take up the search on his own.
He has visited his son's friends across Delhi and in Chandigarh to get any clue of his missing son.
Gul, a native of Baramulla, had gone to meet a friend in Mayur Vihar on November 9 but did not return to his Saket residence since then.
His father was in town that day and has been searching for him since them.
"He was studying mass communication from Amity International, Noida. His last location was Sarai Kale Khan and since then his phone was switched off,” the boy's
father Nazir Ahmed Badoo, said.
In the past three weeks, Badoo has met almost every friend of his son and still goes to his college to ask his classmates if they got any clue.
"I came to Delhi on November 7 and found nothing fishy. He used to live in Noida earlier but shifted to Saket recently. I have never been to his Saket residence," Badoo added.
"I had gone to his college without telling him and got to know about his attendance. His mother had told him in the afternoon of November 9 about the low attendance. This could be the reason but he was not the kind of person who could stay away without talking to his parents for over 20 days," he further said.
Badoo has denied any threat or ransom call, although someone did try to ask about Gul from his domestic help.
"My cousin and domestic help have received two calls from unusual numbers and caller enquired about Gul. The call was probably routed through internet and police are also unable to trace the caller," he added.
The police claimed that a missing complaint has been filed and his number has been put on surveillance.
