In yet another major concern for the security forces in Kashmir, a soldier who was home on leave in state is reported to have been abducted.
The same was also confirmed by the Army.
The Army has identified him as resident of Poonch.
The trooper was abducted from Pulwama, in all likelihood.
The soldier belongs to 44 Rashtriya Rifles. He was posted in Shopian, where he was part of the army’s ongoing anti-terror operations.
The abduction comes at a time when the government is considering extending the ceasefire operations.
