J&K police personnel now joins in Lashkar-e Taiba; photo with AK-47 goes viral
In yet another major shocker for the Jammu and Kashmir security situation, the picture of a Jammu and Kashmir policeman holding an AK-47 assault rifle has gone viral on social media. There are unconfirmed reports that he had joined in a terrorist organisation, informed the police sources.
Meanwhile, Ishfaq Ahmad Dar, who was posted at Police Training Centre in Kathua district in the state, was reported missing after he failed to return from his leave on Monday.
Police sources have confirmed to private media outlet that Dar has joined Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba.
“Ishfaq Ahmed had gone on leave from PTC Kathua. He was supposed to report back on October 23 but failed to return. We will take legal action against him,” a senior officer of PTC Kathua was quoted by news agency Press Trust of India.
A resident of Heff Shirmal village in southern Shopian, Ahmed joined the police in 2012, the official said.
In the last two years, around half-a-dozen policemen have deserted the force and joined militancy in Kashmir.>
