Shyam Murti is now waiting with great expectation after being informed that the Police are engaging a foreign Police team to investigate the disappearance of his seven-year-old son.

Chiraag Murti disappeared from his home in Qila, Taveuni on November 12, 2021 when his father was away for work.

The 44-year-old yaqona farmer said he just wants answers so that he can live a peaceful life.

“The emotional trauma that my family goes through each day is a worry,” the father of three children said.

“The saddest part is that Chiraag has been unable to hear and speak since birth.”

 

Chiraag’s twin brother, Chahal is living with the same condition. “What makes us believe that Chiraag is still alive is that Chahal is in good health,” he believes.

“If something wrong had happened to Chiraag, his twin brother would have felt it.”

He intends to continue to fight for his son’s life even if it takes many years.

 

“Life hasn’t been good for us after our house and farm was damaged during Tropical Cyclone Yasa in 2020 and then COVID-19 pandemic struck,” he said.

He is hoping his son will return as soon as possible so that they could celebrate Diwali together.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed that the file was still open for investigation.
