Father offers 5,000 dirhams reward for missing Indian boy in Sharjah

Sharjah, Jul 18 (IANS): Mohammad Aftab Alam, the father of a 15-year-old missing Indian boy in Sharjah, on Thursday offered a reward of 5,000 dirhams to anyone who finds his son.

Mohammed Pervez has been missing from his home in Sharjah's Muweilah area since July 4. It is believed that the boy got upset with his mother who stopped him from watching a show on YouTube and snatched his smartphone, Gulf News reported.

"I would just like to see him come home safe. We have been praying all day since he's disappeared," Alam told Gulf News.

"We will give 5,000 dirhams to anyone who produces any kind of information about my son. anything, I just want him back."

On Thursday, Alam travelled with Sharjah police authorities to Kalba, Fujairah, in search of his son. They were accompanied by child protection officials. The police said they will not intervene in any efforts made by the family to find their son.

"A three-member team of the child protection team took me to Kalba where my brother Mohammad Firoze Alam lives. We were hoping to find some clues there," Alam said.

Several leads have been chased since Pervez went missing but none has panned out so far, the report said.

As per reports, the Grade IX student got upset and went missing after his mother chided him for watching a historical Hindi drama on YouTube and snatched his smartphone.

The boy's father said Pervez had just 8 dirhams with him.

"How long can it possibly last? At first we thought he'd come back in the afternoon but when he didn't show up until late evening we got worried and alerted the police.

Now, his desperate family has been holding onto hope and fervently praying for the boy's safe return.

    I would only advice parents ,not to worry so much.He is a teenager boy,.certainly he will get upset when during tv watch or a mobile snatching.It is normal by teenaged children.I am sure he will return back after getting his anger cooled.Only try not to abuse him ,or any punishment .One has to handle children at this age like as you want to be treated.They are more sensitive.Pray that he may come back on his own.Dont go to search him.I am sure he loves his parents and will comeback to his parents after some time.Accept his decision too when he wants to stay away for some time.Dont worry.He require his own time .Dont bring him home with force or police.Thats the worst thing you can do in such case.Best is mother should say sorry for interrupting him and snatching mobile.Hope the boy will come home safe and as he left home.

    Might be hiding in one of those accommodation, were he more often visits. It’s vacation n good number of people have flown to their hometown.
    So might be difficult until people are back
