No clue yet about boy missing since Sept 11

Kathmandu, November 5:

The parents of an eight-year-old boy Samir Kafley of Kamalakshi, Ason, are in a state of grief since September 11 after getting no information about their son who is missing since that day.

Samir’s mother Sita Kafley said her son had gone out to play with nearby kids at around 5 pm on September 11 but didn’t come back. “At around 7pm, we received a phone call from an unidentified person, who claimed that Samir was with him, and asked us not to inform anybody,” she told reporters.

Though the kidnapper had threatened her of severe consequences, Sita informed the police about the incident. “We didn’t receive any call since the day until before September 23 when the person said that my son was in the house owned by one Hari Shrestha at Chika Mangal,” she said. The kidnapper, however, didn’t demand any ransom for the release, according to Sita.

“There are four Hari Shresthas in the area but my son was not found with any of them,” Sita added.

Samir was a Grade III student of Annapurna Higher Secondary School. He was planning to go to buy a bouquet of flowers to welcome his father who was coming to Kathmandu on September 14.

After the police failed to find any clue to Samir’s whereabouts even in nearly two months, Samir’s kin today organised a sit-in in front of Metropolitan Police Range, Kathmandu, demanding immediate action from the police to find Samir’s whereabouts.
