JK Police rebuts reports of SPO joining militant ranks

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday rebutted reports of a Special Police Officer joining militant ranks.

According to a police statement the teenager identified as Tanveer Ahmed Kasana, son of Mohammed Younis Kasana student of Darul Aloom Tawheed Gunj Baramulla is missing from the said Darul Aloom since 14 April. His gun-wielding photograph has gone viral on internet.

“The news item is absolutely fake and is hereby rebutted on the grounds that the person whose photograph is being circulated is an SPO (Special Police Officer) identified as Bilal Ahmad Mir son of Mohammad Rustam Mir resident of Harduchunam Rafiabad Sopore who is presently posted at DPL Sopore. So the news item along with it’s pictorial contents is absolutely fake and misleading,”the police said in a statement.

The statement added that ‘strict action will be taken against the mischief/rumour mongers who are causing fear and horror in the society and are trying to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere in the valley.’
