India is coming up with a surrender and rehabilitation policy for the youth who want to give up militancy in Jammu and Kashmir. The Union Defence Ministry is deliberating over the issue with the Home Ministry in New Delhi.
The Indian Army is pushing the youth who have taken to arms to surrender so that they can be rehabilitated properly in the society, said 15 Corps GOC Lieutenant General B.S. Raju during an interaction at the Chinar Corps headquarters here.
He said: “We will be doing more work to ensure that more surrenders take place.”
The officer pointed out that it gives no pleasure to the forces to kill young boys who have picked up arms.
The men on the ground during counter-terror operations risk their lives to convince these youth to shun their guns and surrender.
