Feel pained, even if a terrorist dies: J&K Guv
Jammu, Jan 24 (PTI) Stressing that he was “pained” by the death of “even a terrorist”, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik Thursday urged the valley’s militants to shun violence and return to the mainstream.
The Governor also lauded the security forces including the state police for their success in curbing terror activities.
Malik highlighted that his administration was in the process of formulating a fresh package for the rehabilitation of terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The Police is performing its duty in the best possible way. But even if a terrorist loses his life, I feel pained… They all should come back (to the mainstream),” Malik told reporters here on the sidelines of an event.
“When I took over as the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, I tried to give them (security forces) the best possible facilities. I have seen they conduct their operations in tough situations and heavy snow. It’s a difficult task,” Malik said.
While we are sleeping in our homes at night, they are conducting operations, sometimes till three in the morning, Malik said.
