Srinagar: A Kashmiri youth, who had joined militancy in the Valley, has returned home on Friday following an appeal by his mother, a senior police official said.
“Another young boy responding to the appeals of crying mother returned to the fold of family leaving path of violence in the valley”, DGP S P Vaid said in a tweet on Friday. The DGP also wished a happy reunion to the family in his tweet. “I wish the family happy reunion”, he said.
The identity of the boy has not been disclosed. Four Kashmiri youths, who had taken to militancy, shunned the path of violence and returned to the mainstream in 2017.
Last month, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, in a written reply to a question of BJP MLC Vikram Randhawa in the Legislative Council, said that four “misguided youths” shunned the path of violence and returned to the mainstream.
