Residency Rights For Kin Of Ex-Terrorists?


The Centre is working on a plan for proper rehabilitation of nearly 350 Kashmiri ex-terrorists who received arms training in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and Pakistan between 1989 and 2009 but eventually returned to Jammu & Kashmir, encouraged by the state government’s 2010 policy for return of ex-militants.

A major benefit under consideration is for the Pakistan/PoK-born wives and children of these ex-terrorists, who joined them during travel to J&K via the ‘undesignated’ Nepal route, and may involve the issue of documents to legalise their stay in India.

Sources said the Centre’s representative for J&K dialogue Dineshwar Sharma is studying options for economic rehabilitation of the returned ex-terrorists and conferment of residency rights or citizenship to their wives, who they had married during their stay in Pakistan/PoK, as well as children born to them prior to return to J&K.
