Army chief Bipin Rawat Monday said while the government’s policy was that those triggering militancy in Kashmir should be neutralised, the Army’s focus was to ensure that the Kashmiri youths do not join militancy. The Army chief said infiltration was going on from across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
