ONE of the survivors of Huddersfield's worst-ever crime has made an appeal for help.
Mr Abdul Aziz Chishti, of Birkby, survived an arson attack on his home which tragically claimed the lives of eight of his family.
But now he has lost a bag containing treasured photographs and memories of the victims.
Mr Chishti lost the bag yesterday after visiting Huddersfield Library.
He had gone to the library to photocopy many of the photos and documents prior to a visit to Pakistan next week.
The victims of the terrible attack, which happened four years ago next month, are buried in Pakistan and a special memorial is planned.
The fire claimed the life of Mr Chishti's youngest son Ateeq Rehman, his wife Mrs Zaib-un-Nisi, his daughter Mrs Nafeesa Aziz and his five young grand-daughters Tayyaba, Rabia, Ateeqa, Aneesa and Najeeba.
A gang firebombed the family's Osborne Road house as they slept.
Mr Chishti said: "The photographs and comments are very precious to me.
"I had gone to the library to copy them to take with me to Pakistan and when I left the staff gave me a carrier bag in which to put all the copies and papers.
"I then called at a number of shops in Huddersfield before returning home and found I had lost the bag.
"I would be very grateful if anyone does find the bag and let me know.
"It contains irreplaceable material."
Mr Chishti shopped in Poundland, Home Bargains and Tesco yesterday afternoon.
He also visited Barclays Bank in Market Place.
Anyone who can help is urged to contact Mr Chishti on 01484 351595.
