Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday termed the reports of missing Sharda University student joing IS as “hugely worrying”.
“If this is genuine it’s hugely worrying. Sometimes seemingly small actions have huge consequences,” tweeted Omar.
He said it was even more tragic if the assault at Sharda University earlier this month led him to choose the path of militants.
“If what happened to him at #ShardaUniversity has lead him to choose such a destructive path it’s even more tragic. One more life on the path to ruin & one more family in turmoil,” he said.
On October 4, Ehtesham was assaulted during a group clash between Indian and Afghani students at Sharda University.
A gun wielding picture of Ehtesham who was missing since Sunday surfaced on social media yesterday along with his purported audio message in which he pledged allegiance to IS group.
