ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad police have registered an FIR about the disappearance of a Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police officer in the federal capital.
Tahir Khan, who was posted as the superintendent of the police (SP) rural in Peshawar, went missing after reaching the capital on Friday evening.
Mr Khan’s brother Ahmed Din told Dawn that his brother, who is 50-year-old and father of seven children, came to Islamabad to attend a meeting.
“At 6:30pm, Tahir talked to his wife in Peshawar and told her that he was in Islamabad and may return if the meeting is over soon otherwise he would be coming back on Saturday. However, at 7:15pm his wife received a text message that Tahir was in Sarai Alamgir near Jhelum,” he said.
“We kept trying to contact him but his mobile phone remained off so we informed the police. Though an FIR has been registered and the police are in contact with the family, my brother is yet to be traced,” he said.
In reply to a question, Mr Din said his brother had no enmity with any person. He said he was not aware about the meeting in which his brother had to participate.
