The police have withdrawn FIRs against 115 youth of Tral, Awantipora and Pampore areas under the amnesty scheme recently announced by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

An interactive programme was held on Monday at district police lines Awantipora between these youth and police.

During the programme, it was announced that 115 youth were granted amnesty. The youth were “first-time stone-pelters,” it was informed during the programme.

Superintendent of police Awantipora, Mohammad Zahid Malik, DSP Pampore and DSP Awantipora chaired the programme in which these youth were asked to refrain from stone pelting in future.

The parents of these youth were asked to counsel their children. The youth were also asked to shape their careers. “The interaction with youth aims to provide them confidence so that they can begin their life. The FIRs against these youth will be withdrawn and they can build their careers without any hassle,” the SSP said.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had last month announced launch of the Centre’s amnesty for first-time “offenders of stone pelting”, a move that could see police drop charges against an estimated 4,500 people, most of them youngsters.
