In a disturbing social media post, it has been claimed that a Kashmiri youth who went missing from a private university in Greater Noida last week, has allegedly joined the terror group ISIS.

Ehtisham Bilal, a first-year student of Bachelor in Medical Imaging Technology (BMIT) in Sharda University, according to his parents and relatives was missing since October 28 from New Delhi.

On Friday, his photograph, with an AK47 rifle and flag of ISIS in backdrop appeared on social media.

17-year-old Ehtisham Bilal, son of Bilal Ahmad had gone for an outing with his friends to New Delhi but did not report back to the hostel in the evening of October 28.

He reportedly informed his father that he was going on a ‘sightseeing’ trip to Delhi.

On October 4, he was roughed up by a group of students who mistook him as an Afghan during a recent clash between Indian and Afghan students at Sharda University campus in Greater Noida. Police had lodged a first information report against 350 students of Sharda University for rioting.
