IPS Officer’s Brother Joins Terrorist Outfit, Hizbul Releases Picture Of Him Wielding An AK-47

The younger brother of an IPS officer of the Northeast cadre joined the terrorist outfit Hizbul Mujahideen after disappearing from the Kashmir University campus on May 22 this year, according to a photograph released by the outfit in which he is shown holding an assault rifle and sporting a holstered pistol.

The photograph of the armed Shamsul Haq Mengnoo went viral in Jammu and Kashmir after the Hizb released pictures of about a dozen new recruits on social media on Sunday to coincide with the death anniversary of its slain commander, Burhan Wani.

Among the photographs of the others is 25-year-old Shamsul Haq Mengnoo, originally from Draggud village of south Kashmir’s Shopian district.
