A mathematics post-graduate is the 36th youth to join militants in Jammu and Kashmir, an official said here.

Tauseef Ahmad Thokar, who was missing since past few days, has joined the Hizbul Mujahideen, the official told Kashmir Dispatch.

He released a picture of his holding two guns behind a village backdrop. Details of him joining the militants were written on the picture. The poster notes that Thokar joined militants two days ago.
