Mumbai: Hamid Nehal Ansari, an engineer studying for his MBA from Mumbai worked as a lecturer at the Management College in Mumbai until.
Hamid decided to pursue an alternative career in aviation and lined up a job interview in Kabul Afghanistan. He travelled to Kabul on the 4th of November 2012 and was due to return to India on the 15th of November 2012 but failed to return.
Hamids parents Mr Nehal Ansari and Mrs Fauzia Ansari desperately tried to establish contact with Hamid but failed to do so. They have contacted Hamids friends and contacts in Kabul who claim that they do not know the whereabouts of Hamid.
It is speculated that Hamid may have inadvertently crossed over into Pakistan with his friends. Active attempts are being made by the Government of India to ascertain the whereabouts of Hamid.
It is belived that he had planned to rescue a girl from an unwanted marriage in Pakistan or on the wily goading of a chat person on Facebook, he is now untraceable after crossing into Pakistan from Jalalabad, Afghanistan, at Torkham border.
Hamid being a humbel person by nature, the parents believe their boy was misled and provoked into crossing the dangerous Afghan-Pakistan border particularly by one Facebook friend, Saba Khan, who still is a mystery since she cannot be contacted at all.
The Vileparle legislator Krishna Hegde who is helping them in these days of crisis said,“The family has written a letter to External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid even as an officer at the Indian High Commission in Pakistan informed us that they have looked at the details and so far there is no trace of him”.
They are also looking at the jails in Pakistan, Hegde added.
Hedge revealed that they have written to Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde asking him to hand over the case to either the Central Bureau of Investigation or Interpole.
