A Union Home Ministry official says there was no “physical infrastructure” of terror group in the Kashmir Valley.

The Home Ministry said on Tuesday that an engineering student who recently joined militancy had pushed a message on an Islamic State-affiliated news agency that the outfit had killed a policeman in Srinagar’s Soura area on Sunday. A senior Ministry official said there was no “physical infrastructure” of the IS in the Kashmir Valley and the militant might have used the platform to create confusion.

The militant, Eisa Fazli, who the Home Ministry said was associated with both Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Hizbul Mujahideen, had pushed the message on news agency Amaq along with a picture of the dead policeman and his rifle.
