An unnamed youth, who had joined militant ranks, today shunned the path of violence and returned home in south Kashmir following an appeal by his parents, police said.

The development comes three days after footballer-turned-militant Majid Khan laid down arms and returned home following an appeal by his mother which was doing rounds of social media last week.

A police spokesman said: "Responding to the appeal of parents one more youth, who had joined militants, returns home in South Kashmir".

He refused to give details of the youth, saying the security and safety of the individual concerned was paramount.
