Three militants were detained on Indo-Nepal border on Wednesday who were going to Jammu and Kashmir to surrender.
The Shashtra Seema Bal (SSB) manning Indo-Nepal border spotted the three men who were entering into India through Rupaihadeeh check post in Bahraich.
According to information they had come from Pakistan to Kathmandu and had reached Nepalganj to enter India.
During interrogation, they told the security and intelligence agencies that they were taken to Pakistan at gunpoint and were given terrorist training.
However, fed up with terrorists life they escaped from the terror camp and took a flight for Nepal.
They were identified as Mohd Shafiwar, son of Siddiwar of Barapura (Baramulla), Manzoor Ahmad Jargar, son of Abdul Fateh Jargar of Chak Mirza (Baramulla) and Mohd Akbar Lone, son of Khazar Mohd Lone of Kalalkone (Kupwada).
While accepting that they underwent training at JKLF and Hizbul Mujahideen camps in Pakistan, Manzoor Ahmad said that they wanted to go back home to live peacefully. Since entry from Jammu and Kashmir was dangerous they opted Nepal route, he added.
A senior SSB officer said that when they contacted senior officers in J&K and at terrorists rehabilitation center at Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi they confirmed that all the three had sent applications for surrender and they should be allowed entry.
