Lucknow: A parrot is making headlines in the Aligarh district these days, as the owner has declared a cash reward of five to ten thousand rupees after the bird went missing. The owner has also lodged a missing complaint with the police, but the parrot is yet to be found. The missing parrot is said to be of a foreign breed. The owner has also got pamphlets printed and they are being distributed in an attempt to find the parrot. An appeal has been made to the people to help in getting back the parrot and also a cash reward was announced for those who gave any leads or brought the parrot back to its owner.
Unfortunately, no information regarding the parrot’s whereabouts has been received even after four days of it going missing from the Quarsi police station area of the city. With nowhere to go, the owner, a doctor, is appealing to the people of the vicinity to help him find his missing bird.
SC Varshney, a Japan House resident, is a doctor at Deendayal Hospital. His software engineer daughter Saumya’s in-laws are in Ramesh Vihar who love animals and birds. She had bought an African breed parrot online from Bangalore a year and a half ago. Six months later, Soumya moved to London along with her husband. The bird has been with the in-laws since then.
On March 3, Soumya’s father Varshney and mother-in-law Saroj reached Quarsie police station and informed them about the disappearance of the parrot. They informed the police that the parrot of the African breed was grey in colour and had a red tail. The parrot can also speak in human language, and his name is Whiskey.
Speaking to the media, Saroj said, “On March 2, the parrot disappeared at eight o’clock in the morning. Parrots have been seen in Ramesh Vihar, Mansarovar and Gyan Sarovar Colony. I have appealed to the people to return the parrot if they find it. Along with this, about four hundred pamphlets have also been printed, in which it is said that a reward of five to ten thousand rupees will be given to those who help and provide the correct address.”
Meanwhile, Aligarh police officials confirmed that the parrot of African breed went missing and a complaint had been lodged. The search for the missing bird continues.
