Pak. using social media to lure Kashmiri youth

We have information about two militants still hiding in the area. "Besides Pakistan, social media and religion have been playing major role in driving youth to militancy".

While replying to a question at the press conference, Khan said, "The government is very keen to have a new surrender policy".

In the exchange of fire, Mr Khan said one Army jawan of 10th Sikh regiment and a HM militant, Muzamil were killed. "So the search operation is on", he said.

Speaking about the local militancy, the IGP said Pakistan has been running a relentless campaign to lure Kashmiri youths to join militancy. "Most of them are either school or college dropouts", he said.

Describing the arrest of three militants from an encounter site in Kulgam in the past 24 hours, Mr. Khan said this was a reflection of "our commitment to the repeated offer of surrender to local boys".

As the police and security agencies arrested three militants during an encounter at Kund area of South Kashmir, Kashmir Police Chief on Thursday said local militants should join the mainstream as they would be rehabilitated.

Khan identified the arrested militants as Atta Mohammad Malik, Shams ul Viqar and Bilal Sheikh.

The officer said that the youth in the age group of 15 years to 25 years were vulnerable to be exploited as they find it hard to differentiate between right and wrong. "Even if a local militant raises his hands during a gunfight, we will give him an opportunity to unite him with parents and lead a normal life", he said.

IG CRPF at the occasion said there is a greater synergy between all the security forces to conduct anti-militancy operations. "I do not agree with the reported figure of 42, but there is no doubt that youths have gone and joined militants", he said.
