The Assam Police is awaiting confirmation from its Jammu and Kashmir counterpart whether a missing youth from the northeastern state has joined militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen, a senior police official said today.
A photograph of the youth from Assam's Jamunamukh village in Nagaon district holding an automatic assault rifle has gone viral on social media. The photograph has a caption that suggests he is now a member of Hizbul Mujahideen.
The youth's mother recognised him in the photograph as her missing son and said the government should shoot him dead for being a traitor.
