Police on Friday said that two minors were handed over to their parents after being “counselled” by the government forces in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
In a statement, the police said that during the course of interrogation of the two Over Ground Workers, who were arrested on 11 April by Police station Kreeri, it came to fore that the duo had motivated two minor boys of the area to join the militant ranks.
The spokesperson further said that accordingly, the boys were identified and detained. “The two minors were passionately counseled by senior officers of Baramulla Police as well as senior Army officers and were thereafter handed over to their parents,” the statement added.
“The parents were advised to keep a close watch on the activities of their wards so that they do not fall prey to anti-national elements,” the police added. (GNS)
