Srinagar: Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Vijay Kumar on Monday said that police is working on a multi-dimensional front to prevent local youth from joining militancy and those who ‘motivate and lure’ youth towards militancy are being booked under Public Safety Act (PSA).

Talking to reporters, IGP Kashmir said that police have succeeded to a large extent to prevent youth from taking up arms.

“We are working on multi-dimensional fronts to prevent local militant recruitment. Parents’ support is a very must. Parents have played a vital role in bringing youth back. Besides, we were also tracking new recruits through technical surveillance and bringing them back,” the IGP said.
