THEY CAME to the Governor House seeking the Governor’s intervention in connection with their son who has been missing since April 20. But what they got was blows and abuses.
This is the sorry tale of a review officer of the secretariat Musharraf Hussain Rizvi and his wife Taslimun-nisha who came to the Governor’s House on Sunday. When they tried to enter the Governor House, the security officials stopped them. Later, they called police from the Hazraqtganj police station. On reaching the spot, the police bundled them into a vehicle and took them to the Hazratganj police station.
Resident of L-16/601, Badshahnagar, Rizvi’s son Azam, who had left home on April 20 to attend the evening prayers (namaz) at a nearby mosque, did not return home. Rizvi informed the Mahanagar police the same night about the missing of his son. But, the cops reportedly did not entertain the complaint of Rizvi.
Rizvi kept on visiting the police station but the cops finally lodged an FIR as case of missing, after two days. Though Rizvi and his wife suspected that their son was kidnapped, the cops turned down their plea.
The cops asked Rizvi to search for his son on his own, as they were busy in other assignments. The couple visited the senior officials, too, but they did not pay any heed to his complaint.
As they had lost hope, the couple reached the Governor House on Sunday.
The couple wanted to meet the Governor, seeking his intervention to register a report of kidnapping of their minor son Azam. Earlier, a report of mysterious disappearance was lodged in connection with their son.
They requested the security staff to allow them to visit the Governor, but the security officials did not permit them. As the worried couple created ruckus to meet the Governor, the security officials called up the Hazratganj police.
The couple jumped from the jeep near the DSO crossing. Rizvi and his wife threatened to commit self-immolation if action was not initiated to trace their son.
The police beat up the couple and took them to the police station. The police arrested them after registering a case of attempt to suicide.
Though the senior officials were told about the case, they did not take any initiative to issue order to the Mahanagar police station about the case of Rizvi’s son.
