“Another mother’s appeal to her son to shun militancy and return home gets a response. God bless the family and show the path to others,” Vaid said.

On Wednesday, a Kashmiri woman, Mymoona Mushtaq, appeared in Srinagar’s Press Enclave and addressed a spontaneous media conference, asking his missing son to come back.

Her son, Fahad Mushtaq Waza, 19, had gone missing some days back. On Tuesday, his pictures appeared on social media networks, announcing he had joined the Lashkar-e-Taiba.

However, it was not immediately known if the police chief tweeted about Waza.
