When he was unable to find any job suiting his requirement, he called his cousin at 10:55 AM stating that he might return late. However, Mahammad Shohil was not reachable even late at night and went missing after that.

Shohil’s family tried to reach him through all means possible but did not even get a clue about his whereabouts.
