"My brother was shot in his chest. A video I received shows him lying on stretcher," Khursheed said.
His father Mohammed Sayeeduddin and other family members were worried over Farhaj's well-being and were waiting for information.
Farhaj, a software engineer, used to regularly offer Friday prayers at Al Noor mosque as he lives in a nearby neighbourhood with his wife and two children.
Like every day, Sayeeduddin rang up his son, unaware of what was going on at the mosque. "We speak to him over phone every day around afternoon and today being Friday I rang him around 8 a.m. but he did not respond," he told IANS.
He then called his daughter-in-law, who informed him that there was an attack at the mosque and she also tried to reach Farhaj over his mobile phone.
She later went to hospital with a picture of her husband and after a long wait, the authorities told her that he is among 19 people missing.
"We are worried about his well-being and waiting for some information from there," said Sayeeduddin, who lives in Nadeem Colony here.
