Thrissur: Three years after being reported missing with the script for a dream movie, it’s not just his sisters and relatives who are eagerly awaiting Abdul Noushad; there is Rs 65,000 from the accident claims tribunal in Kozhikode as well.
Mathrubhumi had published the story of Noushad, who left his home in Kannur for Ernakulam with the script for a dream movie in July 2017 but went missing.
After reading the article in Mathrubhumi titled ‘Ponnangalayethedi Sahodarimar’, an advocate came to know that it was Naushad who was awarded the compensation by the tribunal. Noushad’s sisters Fousiya, Sunitha and Shemi are awaiting him to return and collect the fund.
Noushad is not just a brother but is everything for the three women. After their parents passed away at a very young age, it was Noushad who took care of his six siblings. It was Noushad who got his sisters married. But one fine morning he went missing.
Noushad, who went to Ernakulam to register the complete script for his dream movie titled ‘Taj Mahal’, met with an accident in Kozhikode few months before disappearing. He was hit by a vehicle while walking out of the Kozhikode railway station. Onlookers took Noushad to a hospital where he spent two weeks. A case was registered and Noushad entrusted the case to advocates who came to help him.
Noushad had assured the advocates to send the tickets for his movie. Noushad left the advocates office inviting them to be at the theatre for the premier show of his new movie.
The advocates tried contacting Nousahd many times over phone and through post but in vain. Despite no fee and response from Noushad, the advocates proceeded with the case and won a favourable verdict.
Though the court awarded Rs 65,000 as compensation for Noushad, he has not come to know the verdict or collect the money.
