An Indian army personnel, who was missing since April 15, has joined the ranks of Pakistan-based terror organization Hizbul Mujahideen, News18 reported quoting a Jammu and Kashmir police official. However, PTI noted that the cops had not made this part of the formal paperwork.

The picture that has reportedly been released by Hizbul Mujahideen shows Sultan with an AK-47, and has his details written across the image in green text. The police had also informed the Army about the case it has registered. The Army so far maintained that he is "missing" with no information about his joining any terror group.

Mir's desertion comes a few days after a man from Assam, missing since July 2017, took to social media to announce he had joined the Hizbul, which has suffered a string of losses in recent months with security forces stepping up the offensive in the Valley. He was scheduled to move to Jharkhand, and is reported to have been unhappy about it.
