Bengaluru, Aug 13: A video in which militants from Pakistan are heard using 'Burhan' as their surname has surfaced and Intelligence Bureau officials say that it was shot in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
In the video, several militants sporting automatic rifles are seen in a jungle, and as they pass the camera, they shout out their names, each one adding 'Burhan' as their surname.
Burhan Wani, a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist was gunned down by security forces on July 8.
There are 12 armed men in the video who are seen raising anti-India slogans. Officials who are looking into the video say that these militants are clearly of Pakistani descent, gauging from the militants' accent.
As each one of them passes the camera they raise slogans and introduce themselves. They are heard introducing themselves as Abdullah Burhan, Rizwan Burhan, Aslam Burhan and so on.
The video was shot for propaganda by the militants themselves. It has become a trend to shoot such videos and post them on the social media. The Intelligence Bureau has begun a process to clean up the Internet of such videos.
The video clearly suggests that Pakistan continues to hold on to the Burhan issue, even as the people of Jammu and Kashmir themselves have now started to raise doubts about Burhan Wani's antecedents.
