TAKHT BHAI - An aged couple from tehsil Takht Bhai, district Mardan, on Sunday appealed to Chief Justice Peshawar High Court and government high ups to help them recover their young son, a taxi driver by profession, who had been missing along with his taxi since October 2009.

Talking to media persons here, Sher Ullah, a resident of Sharif Abad tehsil Takht Bhai informed that to earn livelihood for his family, his son, Imran Khan, a taxi driver, was out at his work and had gone to Mardan taxi stand in his taxi bearing registration number PR-6447 one evening in October 2009, however he had gone missing since then. “We have no information that whether he is alive or dead,” the worried aged father said, adding that an FIR of his son missing has already been registered with city police station Mardan. He said that he and his family were fed up as they searched him everywhere but failed.

He told media persons that his son Imran Khan had also worked at a shop in Takht Bhai, but later he left for Saudi Arabia where he worked hard and earned money and in 2009, he arrived back to Pakistan and bought a taxi for earning livelihood for his family and ailing parents. 

One evening in October 2009, he through his taxi went to Mardan taxi stand where from he did not come back.

He said that they were still waiting that one-day their son would come back, but now they have also fed up.

He said if anybody had kidnapped his son for ransom, they should accept the taxi in ransom but release his son.

He appealed to Chief Justice of Peshawar High Court and government high ups to help them in recovery of their son otherwise they would be left with option no other than committing self immolation in protest.
