Man pines for missing grandson
By OH CHIN ENG
BUKIT MERTAJAM: The family of a five-year-old boy who has been missing for more than a month after going to a food court here continues to worry about him although they have ruled out kidnapping.
“If he was kidnapped, there would have been a ransom demand.
“The person who took my grandson knows him,” said E.P. Veloomurugan, 46, the grandfather of missing boy T. Sathiskumar.
The child was reportedly travelling in a lorry with his stepfather and Veloomurugan before they stopped at a food court in Jalan Permatang Pauh here at about 12.30pm on Aug 8.
The grandfather is a dishwasher at the food court while the stepfather is said to have been on his way to deliver goods at Bukit Kayu Hitam in Kedah.
“I'm heartbroken. My wife died after suffering a stroke in 2010. Now, my grandson who has been living with me since he was a baby is missing.”
Police are still investigating and urged anyone with information on Sathiskumar's whereabouts to contact investigating officer Insp Mohamad Ehsan Abu Bakar at 012 249 4002 or the Bukit Mertajam police operations room (04-538 2222).
