MajidIrshad Khan, a 20-year-old footballer who used to play as goalie for his team in Anantnag, renounced the life of violence behind and returned to mainstream after the heart wrenching video of his inconsolable mother appealing him ‘to come back or kill them’ went viral.
Twenty-year-old Khan walked into an Army camp quietly after videos of his mother Ayesha and his father appealing to him to return home started circulating on social media.
Khan appeared before the Army camp in the middle of the night and surrendered. He was taken to the headquarters of Victor Force, an Army unit engaged in countering militancy in South Kashmir, at Awantipura, 33 kms from here.
“He is with us and we will take care of him. We hope that this will encourage others who have not indulged in any heinous crime to surrender before the authorities,” Major General B S Raju told reporters at Awantipora.
