Bhat was never taking part in street protests and was never arrested before, he said, adding that Mohsin’s parents, and two brothers are under tremendous stress and worried.

The family members appealed Mohsin to return as according to them, his mother is a heart patient and his other brother is also ill. “We request everyone, every organisation and agency to kindly return him back as his mother and brother are very ill,” his father said.

Pertinently, four youth including a BUMS student from the same village have joined militancy in the last two months. Among them, one was killed and other was arrested during Shopian encounter last week.
