New Delhi: In a bid to streamline the surrender of Kashmiri youths from Nepal, the government is likely to deploy Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel along Indo-Nepal border.

The Union Home Ministry revived its year-old proposal of deploying the state police personnel to identify the people who want to surrender after the row over the arrest of Syed Liyaqat Shah. Liyaqat was arrested by Delhi Police on suspicion of being a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist while Jammu and Kashmir Police claimed he was on his way to surrender.

A high-level meeting chaired by Union Home Secretary R K Singh in New Delhi decided that there was a need to institutionalize the Nepal route for surrendering of Kashmiri youths who had crossed over to Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir in 1990s, the sources said.

The J&K police will assist SSB in identifying Kashmiri youths who have been using Nepal as an alternative route to enter into the Valley, official sources said on Tuesday.
