Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Jan 11 (ANI): The Jammu and Kashmir Government on Wednesday said that around 4088 missing people, including terrorists of the state are still in Pakistan or Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The information was provided by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti when asked a question by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Rajesh Gupta in the state assembly.

As per the rehabilitation policy of 2010, the Home Ministry only recognises four routes for the return of former militants which are JCP Wagah Atari, Salamander, Chakan Da Bagh crossing on the Line of Control and through Indira Gandhi International Airport.

Mehbooba said that since the inception of the policy, no youth has been able to return through the approved routes, hence they are not entitled to any benefit available under the policy. (ANI)
