The family was resident of Paracha village near Dera Baba Nanak Gurdaspur, India before the historic partition. However, in the partition a daughter and son went missing.

The family later migrated to Pakistan leaving behind their two children. The mother, Allah Rakhhi, later contacted one of her former neighbours and learnt the whereabouts of her son Bayanth.
