    The DGP also wished a happy reunion to the family in his tweet. "I wish the family happy re-union", he said.

    The age of the boy has not been disclosed. Four Kashmiri youths, who had taken to terrorism, shunned the path of violence and returned to the mainstream in 2017.

    Notably, last month, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, in a written reply to a question of BJP MLC Vikram Randhawa in the Legislative Council, said that four misguided youths shunned the path of violence and returned to the mainstream.

    "Efforts are being made to counsel the families of militants to convince their wards to give up violence", she said.

    The chief minister said her government had taken a number of states to contain radicalisation and extremism, and undertaken youth engagement activities, such as cricket tournaments.

    Mufti said youth clubs had been set up at the police station level to train them in information technology and indoor games.

    Also, she mentioned about the surveillance on social media, which she said had been enhanced as the Internet plays a major role in radicalisation of the youth.
