Also, policemen have been under attack from the militants. In June, a deputy superintendent of police - Mohammed Ayub Pandith - was lynched by a mob outside Srinagar's main mosque. Sources said Dar was shifted from Kargil to Kathua in July after adverse reports about his alleged "militant sympathies".

He returned home and went missing from there, following which his family lodged a missing report in a police station yesterday. "We will take legal action against him", PTI quoted a senior official at training centre as saying.

When he did not show up at Kathua, news reports said, his family filed a missing person's complaint. Soon after, the photograph of Dar surfaced on social media.

The Hindustan Times added that in May this year, a constable from Shopian, Syed Naveed Mushtaq, decamped with four service rifles and joined the Hizbul Mujahideen.
