The video shows Jaat, carrying an automatic rifle, exchanging hugs with some Hibzul Mujahideen militants, although police officials refused to comment on the video saying they were verifying its veracity.

The video is believed to have been filmed somewhere in a forest area of south Kashmir, as Jaat had joined Saddam Padder in Pulwama after his escape from custody from the SMHS hospital on 6 February.

Two cops, on escort duty with Jaat, were shot dead by the militant and his accomplices before he made good his escape.

Four people were arrested by police for facilitating Jaat's escape.
