PULWAMA — A teenage boy from south Kashmir’s Pulwama district has gone missing a week ago, leaving his parents in shock and despair.

A resident of the district’s Drabgam village, the youth Fazil Nazir Bhat is the brother of a slain militant commander Zahid Nazir Bhat alias Zahid Tiger.

Meanwhile, the family of the missing youth, who is just 18-years-old, have appealed to the youth to return home as it is believed that he might have joined the militant ranks.

In a video appeal issued by the family on Friday, they asked Fazil to return back home as they have been living in despair since he left them.
