Police Tuesday claimed to have apprehended in Ganderbal district a boy who was planning to join the Zakir Musa-led Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind.
The boy, from Srinagar’s Rainawari area , was “under surveillance as he was in contact with some Pakistani militants on social media sites,” Fayaz Ahmed Lone, senior superintendent of police (SSP) Ganderbal , said.
“We knew his movement and nabbed him early today at Qamaria Chowk in Ganderbal district of the state,” Lone said.
The boy “confessed of his intention to join the Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind, an Al-Qaida affiliate in Kashmir headed by Zakir Musa,” Lone said, adding that he was handed over to his parents after counselling.
Lone also appealed to the parents to take care and watch the activities of their children to keep them away from “such type of evils who brainwash our children.”
