Sehraie’s son joins Hizb; his choice, says father Ashraf Sehrai
Srinagar: Six days after Mohammad Ashraf Sehraie assumed the office of Chairman Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, his son has gone missing from home and seems to have joined militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen.
Kashmir Inspector General of Police SP Pani confirmed to Kashmir Reader that Sehraie’s son, Junaid Ashraf Khan, is missing and his family has filed a missing report at police station Saddar on Saturday.
At around 1pm on Friday, the 30-year-old Junaid left his home in Baghat, Srinagar, to offer Friday prayers and since then has not returned, according to his family.
Junaid completed a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at Kashmir University in 2014-15. After he went missing from home, a photo of Junaid appeared on Saturday, showing him clutching an AK-47 rifle. The text on the photo gave his name, alias, qualification and announced that he had joined the Hizbul Mujahideen on March 24, 2018, that is, Saturday. Junaid’s nom de guerre in the Hizb has been shown as Amaar, one who prays five times and fasts.
