J&K cop holding AK-47 in his hands has reportedly joined LeT
Kashmir: A picture of a Jammu and Kashmir policeman, holding an AK-47 assault rifle in his hands, is doing the rounds over the internet, triggering rumours that he has joined terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
The policeman, who was posted at the Police Training Centre (PTC) in Kathua district here, was supposed to return to his duty on October 23, but he did not.
"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 said.
The officer further said that the department was trying to ascertain the authenticity of the reports that the missing cop has joined the LeT in south Kashmir or not.
Ahmed, a dweller of Heff Shirmal village in southern Shopian, had joined the Jammu and Kashmir police in 2012, the official said.
In the recent times, eight cops have left their job with police to join the militancy in Kashmir.
