A close relative of the two brothers said that Younis Ahmad Dar, and his younger brother Faisal Hassan Dar had left for Kanpur on November 14 at around 10:30 pm with a truckload of animal hides, wherefrom they were supposed to reach Jalandhar.
“On the following day, they reached Jasrana at 10:30 am, after snacks they took their way; however, they were e-challaned of Rs 2000 near Etah adjacent to Secundra Rao.
Upto that spot, we were in touch; however soon after, their phones reflected false bells and came switched off.
Once we approached the local police station, they cited the eyewitness and said that the duo may have been most probably intercepted by a group of dacoits near Noori Masjid, Secundra Rao.
The phone numbers of the duo were put to surveillance to access the location,” the official said adding it came to fore that the mobile phones have been turned off somewhere near Secundra Rao in Hathras district along GT road.—KMS
