CBC News’ Shanifa Nasser  reported on Monday evening after talking to the Khan family, that the brothers were working out at a gym, and then met up with friends in Mississauga. The brothers have not used their cell phones since going missing on Friday, November 4, 2016. Mohammad Khan indicated that the brothers have never been out of touch for this long; and over the last few days they have searched the roads, and checked with local hospitals. 

The younger brother Shahrukh attends White Oaks Secondary School located in the College Park community of Oakville; and his older brother, Hamza is studying architecture at Sheridan College. They are one of seven children in the Khan family.

CBC did inquire if the Khan brothers may have left the country, to which their father Mohammad Khan replied that both of his sons’ passports remain at home.

    Who wrote this? This article is riddled with spelling mistakes and the name of one of the brothers has been misspelt. They are of Pakistani origin (so, South Asian…not middle eastern).

    • Nolan Machan says:

      Thank you for your comments. The names were provided through the Halton Regional Police by the parents, and then reconfirmed by their Facebook pages. Regarding ethnic origin. You are correct in that the brothers are from Pakistan; however, the visual description has the brothers visually looking more middle eastern than south asian. The police are trying to provide a description that the majority would find easiest to understand. It is not a perfect system, but it is a step in the right direction. This description is far better then what the police used to use, which was non-white.

      • Nad says:

        Seriously! If they are from Pakistan they are from Pakistany descent!

      • H says:

        His name on facebook page is “Shahrukh”, not Shahruka.

        • Nolan Machan says:

          Thank you the name was spelt correctly in a few spots and incorrectly in some others. They are all now using the same spelling, which you provided.
