Eight and a half years have passed, the mystery of the disappearance of a senior bureaucrat could not be solved, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Friday.   

Amjad Shahid Afridi, a grade-20 PAS officer, mysteriously went missing during the service on March 18, 2014, soon after he reported to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for his posting in the province.

Nothing was heard about the officer since then as the government and its agencies failed to recover the officer or find any clue to his whereabouts.

He was feared to have been kidnapped after his car was found abandoned at the Chach interchange on the motorway March 18, 2014.

Unfortunately, no one from the bureaucracy or its associations raised a voice for the recovery of the colleague.

Amjad Afridi led many departments as a secretary during his past postings in KP and Punjab. He was known for his honesty and competence. However, few of his colleagues made efforts to provide some relief to the family.

Interestingly, he was appointed in Pakistan Administrative Service in November 1986 and retired on 3rd May 2020 on the completion of 60 years.
