JK student who joined militancy returns to family after parents’ emotional appeal

Passionate appeals by family members yielded results as Ethesham Bilal, a Jammu and Kashmir student pursuing engineering at a Noida-based university, who had reportedly joined the banned Islamic State of Jammu and Kashmir (ISJK) terror outfit, returned home Sunday afternoon.

The Jammu and Kashmir Police, without mentioning the name of any individual, tweeted, “With the help of family and #police an individual (name withheld) has been brought back to the mainstream. Further details shall follow.”

A resident of Khanyar in downtown Srinagar city, the 20-year-old Ehtesham showed up on social networking sites wearing a black turban and black pathan suit with ammunition pouch tied to his chest amid a Islamic State flag on his back.
