Son of New Hurriyat Chief Joins Hizbul Mujahideen

26 March, 2018, 01:08 | Author: Jeannette Greene
  • Soldiers near the site of gunfight in Kulgam. There have been several reports in the past of youth missing and social media posts claiming they have joined Hizbul Mujahideen. Police are now keeping a close tab on such cases

The police official said Junaid Ashraf had been missing since Friday's prayers. "We are investigating the case and a missing complaint has been received", senior superintendent of police, Srinagar, Imtiyaz Parray, said.

"Today his picture wielding an AK-47 rifle was circulated on the social media".

The new chief's elder son Khalid, who reportedly works in Saudi Arabia is said to have lodged a missing complaint with Srinagar Police. That makes him the first among the family members of the current top separatist leadership to take up arms.

Junaid, who has an MBA from Kashmir University, hails from Tikipora village in Kupwara, which is also the village of Mannan Wani, an AMU Ph.D student who recently joined the Hizbul.

The family of Mr. Sehrai, a resident of Srinagar's uptown Baghat Barzula area, approached the police on Saturday. The text with the image states Junaid's code name is "Amaar Bhai" and he joined the Hizbul Mujahideen, a home-grown militant outfit, on March 24, 2018.


Sources in the state's intelligence grid confirmed there are reports of Junaid having joined Hizbul Mujahideen, but the information has not been confirmed thus far.

Director General of Police S P Vaid has termed Junaid's joining militancy as unfortunate. I urge Sehrai that, since he is in command, he appeal to his son and other local boys wielding guns to return.

The development comes days after Geelani handed the baton of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat to Sehrai, one of the few men who have worked with Geelani for decades, after the group's executive council choose Sehrai as its chairman.

Faiz also apprised them about the continuous detention of Dr. Mohammad Qasim Faktoo, who is under detention for more than 28 years and other Kashmiri leaders.
