30 July 2009

Jammu: A 21-year-old youth, who was allegedly being brainwashed by Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) cadre to join militancy, has been rescued by the security forces in Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir, defence sources said here today. A joint column of Rashtriya Rifle and state police rescued Abdul Qayoom from Gurmul, about 200 kms from here, in the district yesterday, they said. Qayoom, hailing from Panim village, was missing from his house since July 7 and was allegedly being brainwashed by HM cadre to join militancy, they said, adding he has been handed over to the police for questioning. His revelations would help the police to know the outfit's network in Doda, they added.
