Gun no solution to any problem, recruitment of militants gone down: Army

‘Among 2 militants killed in Kulgam, one is local youth Tariq Mir’

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Srinagar Oct 10: Army on Saturday said the gun was not a solution to any problem and claimed that recruitment of militants has gone down in Kashmir.

“Recruitment of militants has gone down which is a good sign. We appeal Kashmiri youth to look after their families and focus on their studies,” Sector commander of Army’s 9 RR regiment, Brigadier V S Thakur told reporters as per news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS).  

This he stated after the Army killed two militants in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district. “Two militants have been killed. One is a local youth Tariq Mir and another is a Pakistani. The operation was launched by RR after receiving specific information from the police. It was a successful operation with no loss of life or property,” he said.

“Gun is no solution to any problem. The youth in Kashmir should focus on their studies and help in bringing peace in the valley,” he added.

Meanwhile, General Officer Commanding 15 Corps, Lt General B S Raju said that there are inputs that about 250-300 militants are waiting to cross to this side of Line of Control. “But we have been successful to some extent in blocking their infiltrations,” he said during a press conference here. 

He said 130 militants infiltrated last year and the number is 30 this year so far.

He said that the situation on LoC is under control and only a few ceasefire violations are being done by Pakistan to initiate the infiltration.

On the Shopian fake encounter, he said, “We have ordered a summary of evidence which is halfway done and we expect it to be completed at the earliest so that further steps can be taken.”
