Jammu: Director General of Police S P Vaid today urged all women in Jammu and Kashmir to appeal to their sons, who have joined militancy, to shun the path of violence and return home.
The DGPs reaction comes after college student and footballer Majid Khan, who had joined the Lashkar-e- Taiba a week ago, walked into a security camp in south Kashmir last night and surrendered with his arms and ammunition.
He was whisked away to an undisclosed destination early this morning, officials said in Srinagar.
Majid, a goalkeeper for his local team in Anantnag in south Kashmir, is believed to have turned to militancy after a close friend was killed in an encounter.
“I pray that wisdom prevails and all such mothers whose sons have picked up guns also appeal to their sons to give up the path of violence and come back home,” the DGP wrote on Twitter. PTI
