‘Will welcome back youth who have joined militancy’: Top Army commander

The Indian Army has extended another olive branch to the misguided youth of the valley who have joined terrorism.

Lieutenant General BS Raju, Goc (15 Corps), Indian Army said that while they would act against those who pick up arms, those who want to shun militancy and return to the mainstream are always welcome to do so.

He added that militancy is not a one way street and encouraged them to give up arms and return.

The commander also referred to similar incidents in the last few days where terrorists have heeded to advice from the security forces and surrendered.

On October 26, a youth who had joined militancy in September 2020 surrendered during a live encounter.

He was later reunited with his family members.

In another such incident, two terrorists had surrendered before forces in Baramulla.

They had also been freshly recruited into terror organisations.
