Srinagar, Mar 03: Police on Tuesday claimed to have prevented six boys including five minors, hailing from Budgam district of central Kashmir, from joining militant ranks.
“Acting on a specific input, police in Budgam were able to prevent six boys from joining terror ranks… They had been indoctrinated and influenced by false narratives,” a police spokesperson said on Tuesday.
The boys are from Narbal and Magam areas of the district. They were handed over to their families after counselling by the police officers, he said.
