Srinagar: The family of footballer turned militant who was killed in a gunfight in Baramulla have denied having spoken to their son ever since he had gone missing, adding that the audio doing rounds on social media claiming to be a telephonic conversation between the father-son duo is “fake.

In a video uncle of the militant, Nazir said that in fake audio the person speaking to his father is speaking in a south Kashmir accent. The person in the audio is addressing his father as Aba, and his mother as Boba. My nephew used to address his father as Abu ji and his mother as Mummy. It is not my Amir’s voice,” he said.
The person in audio can be heard as saying that he was cheated as some guys clicked his pictures with a gun a made it viral.
However, uncle denies that and says we have never talked with their son since he has gone missing.
The conversation is complete lie and is far from truth, he said.
we had no idea about the gunfight till 5 pm. At around 5:30, the concerned SHO called us and told us to identify the dead body of Amir.”
