Son of Geelani's Successor Joins Hizbul, Pic Goes Viral on Social Media

Reports said that Junaid Ashraf Khan, left for Friday prayers near his house in Baghat locality and has not returned since.

Known for keeping a low profile, Sehrai, a close aide of Geelani who untill his elevation in Tehreek-e-Hurriyat acted as its general secretary, refused to speak about the issue, "Whatever I have to say, I have stated in my police complaint".

If the development is confirmed, it will be perhaps for the first time in three decade long insurgency that the son of a senior separatist leader, who are often accused by mainstream political parties of pushing "poor man's son" towards the path of violence, will have joined ranks with militant groups. The description of the picture reads that Khan has pursued Masters Degree in Business Administration from Kashmir University and has been code-named as Amaar Bhai.

Soon, the pictures of Junaid (26), started to appear on social media brandishing a gun, giving rise to suspicion that he has joined the militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen.

His family members had registered a missing report at Saddar police station in uptown Srinagar on Saturday.

Wani's father, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, succeded Geelani as chief of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat. After taking over as Hurriyat Chairman, Sehrai had came down heavily on those supporting the Islamic State ideology, saying it has nothing to do with Kashmir and their venomous ideology will never be accepted. "We are working on it and a confirmation will be made soon", sources said.

Naqshbandi informed the representatives about the plight of these detainees and shifting them in violation to norms and rules to the prisons outside Kashmir in order to punish them, the statement said, adding that prisoners are deprived of proper medical and legal aid. He also apprised them about the continuous detention of Dr. Mohammad Qasim Faktoo, who is under detention for more than 28 years and other Kashmiri leaders.
