New Delhi, Nov 25: A local militant belonging to the Lashkar-e-Tayiba surrendered after his family coaxed him to do so. The militant identified as Abu Majeed surrendered before the security forces at the Tushar Sharif area in Baramulla, Jammu and Kashmir.
He was holed up in a house which was cordoned off by security forces. The security forces knowing that he was a local wanted him to surrender. The security forces have said that they do not want the youth of Kashmir to die in encounters and hence they are adopting the surrender policy.
At first Majeed was reluctant to surrender. The security forces then brought in his mother and sister to coax him to surrender. After coaxing by his mother and sister, Majeed surrendered. The mother and sister were assured that he would be treated well and not harassed.
A similar incident had occurred at the same place a few weeks back. In that case, the Lashkar-e-Tayiba militant, Umar was coaxed by both his parents to surrender before the security forces.
