Ultras weaker as J&K youth shun violence: CRPF

Srinagar: The trend of youth shunning violence is a setback to terrorist organisations in Kashmir, a top Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officer said here on Saturday while calling the amnesty given to first-time stone-pelters a "large-hearted" approach. "This (return of youth to mainstream) is a good trend. The forces always wanted to wean the youth off violence. Off late, we have had success. Several people, including a footballer, shunned the path of violence and returned home. It is a good step and an opportunity for the youth to rectify mistakes and return to the mainstream," CRPF I-G Ravideep Sahi said.
Sahi said the trend was a setback for militant organisations operating in the valley.
