A suspected militant, Danish Ahmed, surrendered before police on Wednesday. Danish had reportedly attended the funeral of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Sabzar Bhat in Tral in Awantipora earlier in May. He was seen in a video footage of the funeral that was circulated later. While in touch with militants from south Kashmir on social media, Danish is said to have been instigated to join them. According to a news report by News18, investigations revealed that Danish is a resident of Kulangam in Handwara. He is also a third-year student of B.Sc at the Doon PG College of Agriculture, Science and Technology in Dehradun.

According to reports, Danish was involved in stone-pelting incidents at Handwara in 2016. Sources said while most boys who join militancy become disillusioned by the ‘gun’, they are unable to escape or surrender as they face continued threat from local commanders.

Quoting sources, News18 reported that Danish has revealed how most militants are engaged in acts of extortion and thuggery in and around areas where they operated. Local boys also join militancy in order to ‘make friends’ with the girls in the areas so that can be regarded as heroes, he is learnt to have said. Militants also allegedly settle personal disputes of villagers and earn money by taking ‘protection money’ from the local leaders.

According to the source, Danish said there was an endless supply of money from Pakistan.

        While he needs to be punished, if he has not committed any serious crime, then Govt should consider relocating him and his family elsewhere in India to protect them and show others that for those who left militancy there is a possibility of safe future. I believe most of them join for money and fame, but when they realize it as hell, they continue as they dont see any way out. This war cannot be win with weapons

          Happy to note this. But, the government careful not to go slow on their operations to eliminate trouble makers. Surrender militants must go through due process of law and must be made to undergo punishment for their activities under careful watch. If they show signs of remorse and good behavior then we can relax their period of punishment and encourage to take up lawful activities.

            Looks like a crooked plan. These people who are ready to lay down their lives, know very well that if they surrender, then they will be killed by the militants. Have no sympathy on these half terrorists, put them in prison for 5 years atleast.

                  Why has it taken bjp govt to realise this ? Congress was incompetent but bjp should be proactive . Now it should keep Kashmir on top of its agenda.
