A police official at the Satellite Town Police Station in whose jurisdiction the Afghan consulate is located said that Afghan national Muhammad Hashim who worked in the passport section of the consulate went missing since July 25.
"Siddiqullah, the son of the missing Afghan official, has lodged an FIR in our station," police official Sardar Shah said.
