Shopian protest shutdown ends
'Missing' youth joins militants, releases video
SRINAGAR, May 15: After four days of protest and shutdown over a "missing youth" in Shopian district, life was back to normal today when a video clip on social media showed the youth had joined militant ranks.

Zubair Ahmad Turray, a youth from south Kashmir's Shopian town, had escaped from custody of Keegam police station on May 1.

Turray had been detained under the Public Safety Act (PSA) for stone pelting.

Locals and family had alleged that the police had stage-managed his "escape".

However, on Sunday, Turray appeared in a video clip posted on the social media, displaying weapons along with other militants.

In the 5-minute video clip, Turray asked his father not to worry for him since he had joined the militant ranks.

Turray said he was forced to join militant ranks as he had not been released from custody despite the court having set aside his detention. "I was subjected to tyranny. The slavery was the reason to join militancy," he said, in the video clip
