    Wani had left Aligarh a few days back. He was to return to his home in Kashmir. However a few days later images of him holding an assault rifle surfaced indicating that he had joined the terror outfit. Following this, his parents filed a missing complaint and even appealed to him to return home.

    Wani was pursuing PhD in Applied Geology at the AMU. The police then conducted a raid at his room in the university. Further investigations on how he was radicalised before joining the outfit are on.
