Soldier, Hizb militant killed in Kashmir

Soldier, Hizb militant killed in Kashmir

However, he said when security forces were moving towards a particular area, militants hiding there, fired at them with automatic weapon.

He said over 15 militants had been arrested in the past four months in south Kashmir, where militancy figures are showing an upward trend this year.

The Jammu and Kashmir government is preparing a new surrender policy for local Kashmiri militants.

Inspector General of Police Kashmir range, Muneer Ahmad Khan on Thursaday said that Pakistan was using social media to recruit militants in Kashmir.

"Despite the fact that a soldier was killed on November 14, security forces shifted an injured militant, Atta Muhammad, hit by bullets in the legs, to hospital". "Koi rok nahi hogi (there will be no halt)", he said about the "Operation All-Out" against militants.

Addressing a presser in Srinagar over the ongoing operation in Kund village of Kulgam, Khan said: "Relentless social media campaign has been started by Pakistan to lure youth to join militancy".

Khan told media persons that one of the arrested terrorist was injured during an encounter earlier this week in the forests of Kulgam district.

Responding to a question, IGP Kashmir said that youth are driven to militancy because of the influence of social media and religious factors. "Now we will ask him what drove him to join militants", Khan said about Shams-ul-Viqar, an alumnus of the elite DPS school and a top athlete. He said the new "surrender policy would offer 'rehabilitation of the militants who shun the path of violence and join mainstream"'. We will send our recommendations on how to rehabilitate them to the government.

IG CRPF at the occasion said there is a greater synergy between all the security forces to conduct anti-militancy operations.

"Even if a local militant raises his hands during an encounter, we will help him to return to his home and lead a normal life", he said. Army will calibrate on application of force during the encounters and post encounter situations.
