Srinagar: A Kashmiri army man from volatile Pulwama and posted at North Kashmir's Baramulla district has been reported missing from his unit with AK rifles and ammunition. He has been missing since Wednesday night.

Official sources told News18 that Zahoor Ahmad Thakur of 173 Territorial Army regiment of Indian army, went missing from Gantmulla area of Baramulla district.

The arms and ammunition held by the Army man, who hails from Pulwama, are also missing and police have launched a manhunt to track him.

There are apprehensions that the said army man may have fled with militants but police have not confirmed this so far.

Police have alerted all nakas and kept a tab on his friends and relatives to see if he gets in touch with them. Police are maintaining vigil at his Sirnoo village home too.

Early this year, a cop hailing from Shopian had joined Hizbul Mujahideen ranks along with decamped rifles.
