India-administered Kashmir: A Jammu and Kashmir teenager, exposed to extremist content online, has been stopped from joining militants by the Indian Army and the state police, Indian officials said Friday while talking to Indian media.
The teenager was caught with arms in a joint operation by the security forces when he was travelling to Mendhar in Poonch district, they said. Indian Army officials said he was carrying his father’s licensed pistol. Since he is a teenager, no police complaint has been filed against him.
The teen was counselled by the police.
