Army says fresh exercise aimed to ensure their rehabilitation



Baramulla, Jan 13: Scores of former militants in this north Kashmir district Sunday expressed their concern over the Army exercise of seeking details about their households.
 A group of former militants told Greater Kashmir that the Army is going door to door seeking information about them and their families. “The Army must come clean on why it is taking the details about us,” they said, asserting that the exercise was “humiliating and disturbing.”
 Chairman People's Rights Movement Abdul Qadeer Dar said despite having all information about former militants, the fresh investigation is worrying them. “All the former militants are now earning their livelihood by doing small businesses. The Army exercise is fishy and is a matter of concern,” he said.
 A spokesman of Army, while admitting that it was carrying out the exercise, said it was aimed to see the “status of former militants and their families so that they are empowered with various benefits.”
 “Our investigation is aimed to see if any former militant is not rehabilitated so that he is rehabilitated appropriately,” the spokesman said. “There are some complaints that the family members of former militants are not provided necessary NOCs by the civil administration. We are just determined to provide all the help to such families. That is what our investigation is all about.”
