ABU DHABI: In an emotional reunion, a 76-year-old man who migrated to Pakistan nearly 50 years ago has met with his two siblings in the UAE's capital Abu Dhabi.

Hamza Sarkar, who is now a Pakistani citizen, met with his brother TP Mammikutty, 75, and sister Eyyathu, 85, both from the Indian state of Kerala. He flew from Karachi while Mammikutty and Eyyathu came from Kerala for the reunion in Abu Dhabi.

Sarkar had gone missing first time from Kerala in 1951 when he was 11 years old, Gulf News reported.

"He was fond of travelling. One day our mother sent him out to graze the cattle. He never returned," Mammikutty said.

Sarkar boarded a train to Kolkata.

"From Kolkata I went to Bangladesh, which was then part of Pakistan. Later I went to Karachi," Sarkar said.
