Youth Prevented From Joining Militancy: Police

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday claimed to have apprehended a youth who was planning to join militant ranks.

A police spokesman in a statement said that the youth was counselled and handed over to parents.

“Based on credible input from various security agencies, Ganderbal Police apprehended a youth identified as Umar Nazir resident of Ganderbal,” said the spokesman.

“Preliminary investigation reveals that the subject was in constant touch over social media with some suspects in Bandipora and Pulwama and had developed a tendency to join militant ranks,” he said.

“The arrested youth was properly counselled by Ganderbal Police in presence of his parents and later handed over to his parents,” he added.

The spokesman said that the youths are advised to be aware of such anti-national elements on various social media platforms that entice gullible Kashmiri youth to join militant folds.

“The parents are also requested to come forward and report any such activity of their wards so that they are mainstreamed through proper counselling by experts,” said a police spokesman in a statement.
