Budgam: A Budgam man working with Jammu and Kashmir Territorial Army has been missing since Monday evening, reported a section of media.
Reacting to the reports that his son working with Army has gone missing, Muhammad Yaqoob Mall-the father of missing man Sameer Malla Tuesday said that it will be premature to claim that his son is missing.
“He might have gone to see his relatives. His wife had to undergo surgery and that is why he visited home from Jammu. He was in touch with us and last evening he called his mother and then his phone went off,” Muhammad Yaqoob Malla told news agency Kashmir News Trust.
Sameer Malla- a resident of Lokipora in Tehsil Khag of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district was recruited as a driver into J&K’s Territorial Army in 2017. After completing his training, he was posted at 53 RR at Beerwah.
Pertinently, Police in Srinagar had investigated his role after he allegedly transported Major Leetul Gogoi and a local girl to the Srinagar hotel in his private car back in 2018. (KNT)
