Addressing a news conference here at Police Control Room (PCR), DIG Bhat said that Ishaan Majeed, a bi-sexual youth from Bandipora, was in contact with Owais since last one year, faking as girl. “Ishaan is bi-sexual and was acting like a girl by the name of Umaira from Wanbal, Nowgam, from last one year.

He said that Owais was pressing Umaira for a meeting from the last one year but on 12th of this year, he pressed him hard for a meet and Ishaan agreed the same and asked him to meet on the railway track. “Ishaan after meeting Owais revealed that it was he who was posing as a girl.
