The Hizbul Mujahideen, which has made an unilateral ceasefire offer, on Monday night nominated veteran separatist leader Fazil-ul Haq Qureshi as its negotiator to hold talks with the Union government for working out modalities of the ceasefire.
The nomination of Qureshi was decided at a meeting chaired by Abdul Majid Dhar, chief commander of the outfit in Jammu and Kashmir. Members of the field command council, comprising all divisional commanders in the Kashmir valley and Doda, were present, a statement issued by HM said.
The command council also renewed its appeal to other militant outfits to support the ceasefire and follow suit, the statement said adding it also requested Indian security forces to stop operations against other militant outfits.
The statement said a final decision on participation of the HM in proposed talks with New Delhi rests with the group's Pakistan-based supreme commander Syed Salauddin.
