Missing Srinagar trekker a meritorious PhD scholar at KU, family seeks intervention of LG

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Srinagar, June 17 (KINS): A Srinagar youth who went missing while trekking to Gangabal lake in Ganderbal district is a PhD scholar and has been a “meritorious” student of the Kashmir University, varsity authorities said.

Hilal Ahmed Dar, a resident of Bemina Srinagar, was part of a group of five persons who had gone for trekking to Gangabal lake in Ganderbal district on Sunday morning.

While others got back by the evening, he went missing. For the last three days, there is no trace about his whereabouts.

“He is a PhD scholar. He is a meritorious and bright student and one among toppers,” Head of Department Business School Kashmir University, Professor Iqbal Hakeem told news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS).

An official however said the scholar had not sought any permission from the department before going for trekking.

“A scholar usually informs his or her supervisor while going outside Kashmir or on trekking. But he had not sought any permission,” the official said.

SHO Kangan said they are yet to get any traces about this youth. “We are making efforts to trace him. It will be premature to comment where he might have gone,” the SHO told KINS.

Meanwhile, his family members and relatives on Wednesday protested at Press Colony Srinagar and sought intervention of LG G C Murmu and Deputy Commissioner Srinagar in this regard.

“All his five friends have returned while our beloved has not returned yet. We have been searching for him but to no avail,” the family members said.(KINS)
