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.
