5 Bidding Militants Surrender in Kulgam, Jammu and Kashmir

Kulgam, J&K: Five bidding militants, who had joined different militant ranks, have surrendered in Kulgam and returned to their families according to the police.

“The five youths shunned the path of violence and returned to the mainstream due to the efforts of their families and police,” said the police. However, their identities were not revealed for security reasons.

Dozens of Kashmiri militants have surrendered 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.
