    Army Jawan Zahoor Ahmad Thoke Missingr
    An Army jawan has went missing with AK-47 and three magazines from north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Thursday.

    He has been identified as Zahoor Ahmad Thakur and is associated with the 173 Territorial Army.

    Thakur is a resident of Pulwama district in South Kashmir.

    An alert has been sounded as officials fear that Thakur might have sided with the militants in the Valley.

    The separatists have called a week-long protest to mark the first death anniversary of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.

    Wani was killed in a gunfight in Kokarnag area of Anantnag district on July 8, 2016.​

    The Hizbul militant’s death triggered a summer of discontent and months of violence in Kashmir that left nearly a hundred people dead.
