QUETTA: A journalist working for Pakistan Television and based in Dera Bugti went missing from Quetta last week.

Imam Bukhsh, who works for a news agency, told reporters that his nephew Manzoor Ahmed Bugti reached Quetta from Dera Bugti on Nov 6 and went missing the following day.

“Manzoor went somewhere in the car of a friend whom he had told that he would return in two hours. But he did not come back and since then his whereabouts are not known,” Mr Bukhsh said.

“His mobile phone remains switched off,” he said, adding that no-one had contacted them for ransom.

The Civil Lines police registered a case and an official said police were trying to trace Mr Manzoor.
