Other such incidents

Earlier on July 25, the Jammu and Kashmir Police had said it was able to "rescue" one terrorist who had joined a proscribed terrorist outfit without loss of life and property.

Several terrorists have laid down their arms in Kashmir since 2017 when police announced that they will accept the offer to surrender of local terrorists even during ongoing encounters. Most of these militants surrendered after appeals by their families to shun the path of violence and return home.
