He asked security agencies to devise a strategy to end militant recruitment and militancy and prevent civilian killings. Shah, who is on a three-day visit, sought inputs from security officials on measures taken to prevent radicalisation of youth and local militant recruitment. “The security agencies must devise a strategy to end militant recruitment and militancy in J&K,” he told the officials. According to sources, Shah was upset over the recent civilian killings, including that of five migrant workers and three minority community members. He asked security officials to ensure the safety of civilians. Sources said J&K Lt Governor Manoj Sinha, senior army commanders, J&K police chief, director-general of the CRPF and BSF, and top officials of intelligence agencies apprised the home minister about the prevailing security situation. Addressing youth clubs in Srinagar, Shah asserted that those who wanted to derail J&K’s peace would be dealt with sternly “Nobody will be .

Every year, 208 civilians were killed. After 2014, 30 civilians were killed per year,” he said. Highlighting that the youth can play a major in ending militancy, he said, “Militancy and development cannot go together. Development needs peace. The government can make efforts to end militancy but it is the responsibility of the youth to act as ambassadors of peace and development and tell people that violence can never be the path of development.” Spelling out the Centre’s roadmap on J&K, the home minister said after the completion of delimitation, elections would be held and then statehood would be restored. E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @ Vijayawada The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Saturday granted bail to TDP spokesperson Kommareddy Pattabhiram, who was arrested three days ago for his alleged derogatory remarks against Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy during a press conference.
