In yet another incident of Indian youths joining militancy, a 22-year-old man from South Kashmir’s Kulgam had joined terrorist organisation Hizbul Mujahideen. The youth identified as Shoaib Mohammad Lone had left his home for college but did not return.

The news about Shoaib joining Hizbul Mujahideen was confirmed after his photo holding an AK47 went viral on social media eight days after he went missing.

Following the incident, commanding officer of the 19 Rashtriya Rifles had visited the family of Shoaib, a video of which had gone viral on social media.

During the meet, the commanding officer assured the family of making all efforts for Shoaib’s safe return. He also requested the members of the family to come forward and contribute in their efforts.

A B-tech student, Shoaib is the lone child of his mother. His father had passed away even before his birth.

In a viral video, Shoaib’s mother can be seen appealing to his son to return home.

“I have no one other than Shoaib and I request you to send him back to me,” Shoaib’s inconsolable mother is seen saying repeatedly, while urging him to return home.
