Family members of an Etawah-based truck owner Shakeel Ahmed, who went missing with his two associates from Assam’s Kamrup district on Saturday, have approached an Assam minister for help in rescuing the trio.
Ahmed’s kin approached Himanta Biswa Sarma, the minister of education, health and family welfare and Assam Accord implementation, after Samajwadi Party leaders back home turned a deaf ear to their pleas.
Ahmed’s wife Shama said local residents had contacted Sarma, who recently visited Etawah in connection with the death of an Assamese girl after she fell from a moving train.
“He has assured us of looking into the matter. Some of my neighbours are in touch with him,” she said.
Sarma confirmed he was contacted on the issue. “I am working on it and hopefully there will be some development,” he added.

Ahmed, driver Naseem and cleaner Shakeel went missing while they were carrying a consignment from Gwalior to Guwahati. The trio were last located in Assam’s Kamrup district. Assam police recently informed Ahmed’s family that the truck had been recovered but the trio were missing. Kamrup SP Indrani Barua said: “We have not been able to trace them yet. We are working on it and are hopeful of a breakthrough in the case by next week.”
Meanwhile, Ahmed’s family rued lack of support from local police and SP leaders in Etawah, the native place of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
“From local police to SP leaders, everyone told me that since the incident occurred in Assam, the state government cannot do anything about it. If the government can rescue people from Iraq, why can’t they help me find my husband fromAssam,” Shama said.
Shama, a mother to two girls and three boys, had to be admitted to a hospital. “No SP leader offered soothing words to me,” she added.
