145 applications worked out: DGP
‘Will Cooperate In Unmarked Graves Probe’
RETURN OF KASHMIRI YOUTH
Jammu, Sep 22: The Jammu and Kashmir police Thursday said that out of 700 applications filed by relatives and parents of Kashmiri militants to facilitate their return to the state, 145 had been worked out.
“Till now, 700 applications have been received, and of those, 145 have been worked out and others are in process,” Director General of Police (DGP) Kuldeep Khoda said.
He was talking to reporters after inaugurating Amar Jawan Jyoti at Police Martyr’s Memorial here.
The applications were filed in Rajouri, Doda, Kupwara, Baramulla, Kishtwar, Shopian and Bandipora districts. The return and rehabilitation policy of the state government aims at facilitating the return of ex-militants who belong to Jammu and Kashmir and had crossed over to PaK for training in use of arms and explosives but had later given up militancy due to change of heart and were willing to return to the state.
On the issue of mass graves in Poonch district, Khoda said, “These graveyards, let me tell you, are in the area where there is habitation, and the buried include militants, and people who died of natural causes.
“If anybody has any particular complaint then definitely we will look into it,” he said and added the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has submitted its recommendations to the state government which were under active consideration.
Referring to HuJI’s e-mail sent from Kishtwar owning responsibility for the Delhi High Court blast, Khoda said, “National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is probing the case, has taken the arrested persons to Delhi for further investigations.”
In response to another question, Khoda said the militants were still present in hinterland in Jammu as well as in Kashmir valley. “The number of militants has come down but it does not mean that militancy has been completely wiped out. We have to maintain the close vigil on the activities of militants.”
