Srinagar, March 03: Anantnag Police has identified the youth who were motivated by inimical propaganda of anti national elements and had planned to join terrorists ranks. These youth along with their parents/guardians were called at District Police Office Anantnag and were properly counselled by SSP Anantnag Shri Altaf Ahmed Khan and SP Hqrs Anantnag Shri Tahir Ashraf so that these youths do not fall prey to militancy.
On the occasion, SSP Anantnag said that as a part of its efforts to bring teenagers back into the national mainstream, Jammu and Kashmir police is counselling the “misguided” youth to prevent them from falling prey to anti-national propaganda and joining militancy.
He further added that going beyond its mandate of normal policing, J&K Police is transforming hearts and minds by bringing them close to the police working and by instilling national pride in the youth of the Valley.
Anantnag police has also achieved success as well in the recent time as a group of children who were motivated by anti National elements to join the militant’s ranks were brought back in mainstream.
SP Hqrs. Anantnag Shri Tahir Ashraf added that we are working in building confidence among the youth and bridging the gap between Police and public.
Jammu and Kashmir Police has appealed the parents to come forward and help their wards by way of giving them time and counselling them so that they may not be misguided by the anti-national elements who are hell bent to vitiate the peace in the valley.
