Omar terms teenage student’s entry into militant ranks ‘tragic’

Srinagar: Former Chief Minister and National Conference (NC) President on Saturday expressed concern over the media reports of a missing Srinagar youth to have joined militant ranks.

Omar took to his Twitter handle to express his disappointment over media reports saying that Ahtesham Bilal Sofi, a missing student of Sharda University has joined militant ranks.

“If this is genuine it’s hugely worrying. Sometimes seemingly small actions have huge consequences. If what happened to him at #ShardaUniversity has lead him to choose such a destructive path it’s even more tragic. One more life on the path to ruin & one more family in turmoil,” Omar wrote on his Twitter handle.
