No charges against Majid Khan says police After footballer turned LeT terrorist surrendered

"In spite of the fact, one of the army men was killed, the forces arrested three militants", Kashmir Police Chief Muneer Ahmad Khan said.

Jammu and Kashmir police on Thursday said they arrested three terrorists during a gunfight in Kulgam district which left a soldier dead.

He made this statement while briefing media about anti-militancy Operation Kund, which has been continuing since November 14. "Local militants have to be rehabilitated".

They said when security forces were moving towards a particular area, militants hiding there, fired at them with automatic weapons. "Foreign militants are more interested in carrying out terrorist activities than recruitment drives", he added.

Addressing a press conference in Srinagar, Khan said, that Pakistan had started a social media campaign to lure youth to join militancy. "The government is very keen on an effective surrender policy for local militants, for which they have sought suggestions from us".

Khan said police desires that the local militants including the footballer Majid Khan, who recently joined the militants should join back his family.

Khan also mentioned that more youngsters take up militancy in south Kashmir, when compared to the northern parts, because the region has a higher number of local fighters.

Meanwhile, security forces earlier in the day arrested a militant, Shams-ul-Viqar, and recovered an AK47 rifle from him at Wangam near Qazigund railway station. He said when the relatives of the militants would see the arrested boys they would realise that security agencies were genuine in saving lives.
