The Centre has asked Jammu and Kashmir Government to withdraw cases of first time offenders involved in stone-pelting.

Over 4,500 cases against youths involved in stone pelting for the first time will be dropped in a bid to win hearts in the Kashmir Valley, reports a news agency.

The Centre may also consider rehabilitating locals who have joined militant groups but have not indulged in any heinous crimes.

The government will also enhance the compensation to the policemen killed during encounters.

At present, a local policeman’s kin gets 40 lakh rupees as compensation.
The decisions were considered to be part of discussions held by interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma during his visit to the Valley for talking with all stakeholders.

These issues were discussed in detail recently at the core group on Kashmir, chaired by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
