Hyderabad: A twelve-year-old boy who went out from his home to purchase a milk packet went missing in Shamshabad on Saturday. The boy, Irfan Ali Malik, had run away from his family once in the past too, the RGI Airport police said. The cops said they had launched a search. Police said Irfan Ali Malik, a resident of Khaja Galli in Shamshabad, studied in Class V at the LBM High School in Shamshabad. The boy’s family hailed from Kolkata and his father worked as a daily wage labourer.
In the evening, Malik went out to purchase milk from a shop, but did not return home. Panicked family members started searching for the boy in the neighbourhood. Later, they lodged a complaint with the police and a “missing” case was registered. The boy’s parents said they searched in the surroundings and even in the residences of his friends and checked with his friends in the school, but they were also clueless. Earlier also, Malik had gone missing but had returned home after two days. Police started checking CCTV footages. “Based on evidence, we will proceed,” sub inspectot Ramesh Naik said.
