Efforts on to bring back J&K youth on right track: Ahir
NEW DELHI, Nov 22: Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir Wednesday said efforts were being taken up by the government to bring the youth back to the right track in Jammu and Kashmir.

Ahir's statement has come in the wake of reports of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) asking the Mehbooba Mufti-led government in Jammu and Kashmir to consider withdrawing cases against first-time offenders involved in stone-pelting incidents in the valley.

"We are taking up measures so that the youth, who have digressed from their path come back on the right track. Those who have resorted to stone-pelting for the first time will be brought to mainstream," Hansraj Ahir told reporters here today.

"This is not hidden that Pakistan provokes the youth of Kashmir and funds all the wrongdoings. Since the NIA raids were conducted in various offices of the separatists, these people have not been funded," added Ahir.

It was reported yesterday that the Centre was keen on announcing the amnesty scheme for stone-pelters in the Kashmir Valley on the suggestion of its special representative Dineshwar Sharma, and reportedly, over 4,500 cases against the youth involved are likely to be dropped.

Jammu and Kashmir went through a phase of stone-pelting, for almost four months, after the killing of Hizbul Mujahidin militant commander Burhan Wani in July last year.
