Jammu and Kashmir: Student joins militant ranks

Social media posts carrying purported pictures of a Kashmiri boy, who went missing from a private university in Uttar Pradesh days ago, on Friday claimed that he has joined militant ranks in the Valley. Ahtesham Bilal Sofi (17), a resident of downtown Srinagar, was a first-year graduation student at Greater Noida’s Sharda University. He went missing on October 28 after he left the varsity with official permission to go to Delhi, days after he was mistakenly roughed up during a scuffle between Indian and Afghan students in the campus.
