Shopian cop who went missing joins Lashkar-e-Toiba

He added that police are yet trying to "know the facts".

According to sources, many in Dar's family, including his brother, are policemen.

Sources said that the cop was earlier posted at Ladakh and from there he was sent to Kathua. "We will take legal action against him".

"After coming home, the constable went missing and a report was lodged by his family". Soon after, the photograph of Dar surfaced on social media.


Dar joined the police in 2012, the official said.

Territorial Army jawan Zahoor Thakur, resident of Pulwama, had also gone missing in July 2017 with AK-47 from his camp in Baramulla's Gantmulla after which it was suspected that he had joined the terror group.

In the last two years, around half-a-dozen policemen have deserted the force and joined militancy in Kashmir.

Earlier, a constable of Jammu and Kashmir Police, Syed Naveed Mushtaq, had decamped with four INSAS rifles from Chandpora area to join Hizbul Mujahideen. He was subsequently killed in an encounter in Shopian district in April 2016. "Most of the policemen are from a particular patch in South Kashmir, mostly Pulwama and Shopian". "They are not radicalised". Kashmir's police force is hailed for its professionalism as its personnel are often forced to act against civilians, sometimes even minors, involved in protests and vandalism.
