A youth from Doda allegedly joined militant ranks on Saturday and his picture, while holding a gun, went viral on social media.
After seeing the post on a social media site, Doda police and agencies pushed into action and started investigating the matter. "It is after a long time that a youth from Chenab Valley has been seen openly posing with a gun," the police said.
The youth has been identified as AbidHussainBhat @AbbuTurab and he has allegedly joined Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant outfit.
SSP Doda Mohammed ShabirKhatana told media persons, "AbidHussain was a labourer. When we inquired about his whereabouts from his familymembers, they said that he had gone to Rajouri district to find work as a labourer, but after a week, his mobile went off the network and has been switched off ever since. He has reportedly joined LeT."
