Pakistan ambassador to the United States has confirmed that the son of the famous Pakistani television actor, Jamil Fakhri has been killed in the United States.Sources declared that Fakhri’s son's body was unrecognizable, but his identity was confirmed through DNA testing. The bereaved father said “I don’t know when they are going to hand over my son’s dead body. Ali Ayaz Fakhri went missing in the US around 22 months ago and his father said that the Pakistan Embassy did not cooperate with them to recover his son. Fakhri has named two suspects, Mujeeb Lodhi and Adeel Shah in his son’s case and wants them arrested.Speaking to Daily Times on Monday, December 6, 2010, Jamil Fakhri said that a New York office in charge, Saleem Siddiqui, released news on behalf of Adeel Shah and Mujeeb Lodhi. The news piece reported that a friend of Ali Ayaz Fakhri had claimed that the South Carolina Police had arrested Ali on drunken driving charges and sentenced him to four months. Jamil Fakhri in turn contacted Saleem Siddiqui about the sources.“Saleem told me that he received the information on a telephone call. He was reluctant to give the telephone number of the caller. Later, he got confused and mistakenly uttered the name of Mujeeb. I asked him about Mujeeb and he said that he has gone to Pakistan. I told him that Mujeeb could not come to Pakistan as he has some criminal record. At this he asked me to call him later as he did not have the phone number of Mujeeb, but neither person called me or attended my calls,” Fakhri said.In March 2009, Jamil Fakhri was informed via phone call that his son was arrested by the South Carolina police. Jamil Fakhri said, “I contacted New York police who contacted Carolina police who denied the arrest of a man named Ali Fakhri. They also tried to trace the telephone call which I received but informed me that it was a disposable phone and the call could not be traced.”.He believed that Mujeeb and Adeel were involved in the case and they should be arrested.Updated December 16, 2010: The coffin carrying the dead body arrived at the airport last night through a PIA flight. The funeral prayers of Ali Ayaz was held at Ravi Ground today at 10:00 a.m..

|Missing: Ali Ayaz Fakhri|
|Legendary actor Jamil Fakhri pleads for any information about his missing son who disappeared in New York, USA in Feb. 2009.|
To my regular blog readers, the photo above looks familiar to you, because I posted photos of him in my previous post about wedding traditions of Pakistan.He is the father-in-law of our niece who got married a month ago.The wedding was supposed to be in April but was postponed because his eldest son was missing in USA.Jamil Fakhri is one of the legend of Pakistan and recipient of various awards including pride of performance by the President of Pakistan. He spent 38 years of his life to serve the people of Pakistan and Pakistan Television. Legendary Actor Jamil Fakhri perform as ”Jafar Hussain” for PTV Super Hit TV Drama “Andera Ujala“. The video is in Pakistani language , here's the translation:
“I m very tired, I don’t know who to plead, I really don’t know who will tell me about my son” Jamil Fakhri said while talking in a famous TV program Hasb-e-Hall.
He said that his elder son Ali Ayaz Fakhri was reported missing since February 2009 from New York and It’s still a secret as to what happened to him also there are no official word by any USA agency so far.
The actor said that everyone seems to be heartless even the people who once loved him and his work now don’t even recognize his voice.
“I don’t want to die like pleading about my son” he said also added that is there any one who could ask those people who know about his son but are not telling any thing.
Jamil Fakhri also complained in the interview about the careless attitude of Pakistani foreign office who is saying from the very first day that “do what ever you can do , ask whoever you want to ask but at the end you have to beg us (Pakistani foreign office in US) about the whereabouts of your son.
