Five terrorists surrender in Jammu and Kashmir
Srinagar: As many as five youths from Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, who had joined different terrorist groups shunned the path of violence, returned to mainstream and surrendered, police said on Saturday.
A senior police official maintained that the joint persistent efforts of Kulgam police and their families succeeded in weaning away these youth from the path of violence.
However, their identity has been protected for security reasons.
Dozens of militants have laid down arms in Kashmir since 2017 when police announced that they would accept the offer of local militants to surrender even during ongoing encounters.
Most of these militants have returned home after appeals by their families to shun the path of violence.
