Missing Indian's family seeks help from Swaraj
Kespal Singh went to Malaysia to attend his friend's nephew's marriage but has been missing since December. The family is knocking the doors of the External Affairs Ministry and several other politicians but to no avail.
The 46-year-old Keshpal has been working in Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur for approximately 5 years with a security agency as Overseas Representative.
After he came back to his native place Moradabad in UP, he then went to Kuala Lumpur on November 2 to attend the marriage on a tourist visa.
Then, he went to Combodia for a short time and returned to Malaysia on December 12. But he last contacted his family members on December 29 after that his mobile has been switched off.
The family lost all verbal or whatsapp contact with him since then.
Yoginder Singh, the eldest son of Keshpal, says “It has been 20 days and I am worried for my father's safety. I even quit my job since it requires time to contact various offices in Delhi. We even contacted the External Affairs Minister on Twitter but still got no clue of my fathers's whereabouts.”
After Keshpal Singh went missing, the family contaced one of his friends in Malaysia who lodged a police complaint. The family is now meeting various political leaders to add some speed to the case.
Though the External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, has assured the family that Indian High Commission in Malaysia will get in touch with the family of the missing person but still no substantial progress has been made in this regard.
“I have hardly slept since my husband went missing. I appeal to all authorities to look into the matter seriously. We could only complain. It's the work of the agencies to search my husband,” says Lalita who sits with the framed photo of his husband in her hands.
Anil Chahal, the nephew of Keshpal, says “Last, he was seen moving with a man in the CCTV footage. We have provided all details to the concerned authorities.”
Though Keshpal's family is leaving no stone unturned to find him, it still remains to be seen what comes out of the mysterious disappearance of the Indian man in Malaysia.
