Jammu and Kashmir police has claimed that three more Kashmiri youth have shunned the militancy and returned home.
“Another 3 young boys in valley came back home in response to the call of their families. God bless them,” tweeted Director General of Police S P Vaid.
The reaction from Kashmir’s police chief has come at a time when video of slain 16-year-old Jaish militant Fardeen Ahmad Khanday urging youngsters to join militancy is doing rounds on the social media.
Khanday was killed along with two associates on Monday in a gunfight with the government forces that began after the trio launched a pre-dawn attack on a CRPF camp in Lethpora area of Pulwama.
Five CRPF men were killed and three injured in the attack.
