Army, Jammu and Kashmir police reach out to terrorists’ kin, urge them to advise their wards to shun militancy

SRINAGAR: In a first-ever attempt to reach out to the parents of Kashmiri terrorists, Kashmir-based Army chief Lt Gen D P Pandey and IGP (Kashmir Range) Vijay Kumar on Tuesday visited south Kashmir’s Shopian district to meet the families of local terrorists and urged them to advise their wards to put down arms and return to the mainstream for a better future.
The two officers interacted with around 80 families of terrorists active in Pulwama, Kulgam and Shopian districts, and assured that the reformed terrorists will be provided with all types of assistance once they shun militancy and surrender.
The families assured the officers that they would do their best to persuade their wards to put down arms.
Earlier, at a press conference on July 31, Lt Gen Pandey had said there were around 200-225 active terrorists across the Union Territory of J&K, most of them locals. Security forces have slain as many as 89 ultras — including seven Pakistani nationals — so far this year, IGP Kumar had said.
