The news of Kashmiri cops abandoning their troops is nothing new, there have been various previous instances where either Kashmiri policemen or soldiers have abdicated and joined various terror groups. Last year it was reported that a Kashmir policemen Ishfaq Ahmad Dar, who was posted at Police Training Centre in Kathua district in the state, was missing with an AK47 rifle. It was later reported that Dar had joined Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba.

In a similar incident, reported by us, a Kashmiri soldier, Mir Idrees Sultan, who was posted in Bihar, went home to Shopian on leave and had reportedly joined the terrorist outfit Hizbul Mujahideen.

Last year a Kashmir constable by the name of Syed Naveed Mushtaq had reportedly gone missing from the Budgam district of Kashmir on Saturday. The constable who hailed from the Pulwama district was deployed to guard the godowns of Food Corporation of India at Chandpora in Budgam district.

After he went missing, a manhunt was launched by the police authorities on suspicion of him deserting the force to join the terrorists. What fueled this theory further was the fact that he had taken with him four self-loading rifles and ammunition. Unfortunately, their fears were confirmed and according to reports, the Hizbul Mujahideen confirmed the joining of constable Syed Naveed Mushtaq.
