Daijiworld Media Network - Puttur (SP)

Puttur, Sep 22: Rumours claim that a person who went missing from Nekkilady near Uppinangady six weeks back had been a part of a terrorist organization which planned to set off blasts all over the country. However, the district police say they have no such information.

A person named Muhammed Rafique Khan (48), who claimed with the support of documents that he was from Uttar Pradesh, was running a garage near Nekkilady for the last several years. His second wife had filed police complaint in Uppinangady station during August first week, saying that he had gone missing since July 18.

During the period the case was under investigation, rumour about the man having links with terrorist activities and that he is one among the six persons who have been arrested by the Delhi police for links with terrorist activities, have spread in the area. The name of one of the arrested persons is Muhammed Amir Jawed, and there is suspicion that Rafique Khan would have changed his name.

He reportedly had good relationships with those who had dealings with him, shared Biryani made at his home to a Hindu friend, and during discussions, supported the National Register of Citizens Act, the locals recollect. Some said he supported the Muslim Manch of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and expressed the desire to join the RSS.

After he got married for the second time here, the couple lived in a rented apartment. The couple had drawn help from Hindu friends during marriage and sickness. It is claimed that he used to get substantial amounts of money in his bank account and was seen in possession large amounts of currency notes.

The man used to be active in social media circles and shared RSS leaders' speeches, it is said. He used to converse mostly in Hindi and Urdu and sometimes spoke in a language which no one here understood. During the times he received such calls, he used to keep distance from other people, it is said.

Dakshina Kannada district superintendent of police, Rishikesh Sonawane, said that no information about the said missing man having been arrested by the Delhi police has been received, adding that the department will verify the veracity of the above rumours.

    The same episode took place in Kasargod in 2016 . 21 people were missing including 4 families. When the center warned the State Govt, they brushed it as a rumour. Few weeks later the 21 confirmed they were in Khorsan Afghanisthan. Only then did the Keralites start have ants in their pants. So just wait and watch,
