An Indian army Jawan was reported missing from Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, officials said as reported by news agency PTI on 30 July. Javaid Ahmad Wani had gone missing on Saturday evening. He is a resident of Achathal area of Kulgam district in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said as reported by PTI.

As per the latest updates, security forces have launched a massive search operation for Wani.

Officials also added that Wani who was posted in the Ladakh region was on leave and his car was found in Paranhall later last evening.  

His distressed father appealed to those who might have abducted the soldier to release him alive since he was the only breadwinner of the family. While speaking to reporters, his father said, “I appeal to all the brothers to let him go alive. If he has troubled anyone, I apologise for that. If they want I will get him to quit his job as well.”

The father added that his son had gone out to buy meat on Saturday evening as he was to go back to his place of posting on Sunday. "He told his brother to drop him at the airport tomorrow (Sunday). Sometime later, we got a call that his car was found abandoned with its doors ajar," the father said.

Eyewitnesses have claimed that there were blood marks in the car but officials did not confirm it. Police have conducted raids across Kulgam district and adjoining areas to rescue the soldier.
