In Jammu and Kashmir, a terrorist surrendered before security forces and returned to his family today. In a tweet, Kashmir Zone Police said, the terrorist shunned the path of violence and joined his family with the help of community.
Details of the surrendered terrorist have been kept secret in order to ensure his safety.
More than a dozen terrorists have laid down their arms in the state since last year when police announced that they will accept the offer of surrender by local terrorists even during ongoing encounters.
Most of these terrorists surrendered after appeals by their families to shun the path of violence and return home.
