As militants appeared in funeral of slain Saqib at Arihal on 26th of January, Anayat who has been working for militants for many years went with them, said an official.
Belonging to a middle class family, Anayat was a good human being and down to earth person, said his friend Shahid, adding that he was inclined towards militancy since long but never informed his friends that he is going to join militancy and choose the path where he won’t survive for more than five days.
His father according to the locals was a local Panch but he later resigned and is presently earning his livelihood from his orchards
