Danish Ahmed, who was photographed at Sabzar Ahmed Bhat’s funeral, has ‘surrendered’ before the armed forces. J & K Police
and 21 RR (army) got into touch with his parents and impressed upon them to counsel their son for surrender. Danish surrendered before Handwara police and 21 RR army.
Danish revealed that “he was in touch with militants of South Kashmir region on social media sites; and it was “on their instigation that he had decided to become a militant. “He was tasked by Hizbul Mujahideen commanders
to ‘activate’ some local youth in North Kashmir and make the region as militancy infested as the southern part of Kashmir. However, after spending a few days with the militants in South Kashmir, he realized the futility of joining militant
ranks and decided to quit”.
However the Militant outfit Hizbul Mujhadeen on Wednesday said that Danish is not affiliated
with the Hizbul Mujhadeen.
Danish Ahmed s/o Farooq Ahmed hails from Handwara town of Kupwara district. He was studying
in BSc (third year) at Doon P G College of Agriculture Science and Technology, Dehradun. Danish was picked up by the police for stone-pelting in Handwara in 2016 turmoil also, but was let off after counseling in view of his career”.
HM deputy chief, Saifullah Khalid said, “Danish Ahmed who was seen in the funeral of Sabzar Ahmed along with pouch and grenades was never
a part of our outfit and the statement J & K Police is a blatant lie”.
If Danish is not from HM then is there another
un-named organization to which he belonged- Saifullah Khalid needs to explain this also while disowning him.
