Jammu, Mar 26 , 2013 (PTI)

In the past two decades 4,081 militants have surrendered in Jammu and Kashmir, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah told the state Assembly today.

"Since 1990 upto February 28, 2013, 4081 terrorists have surrendered in the state of Jammu and Kashmir", the CM said in a written reply to the question of PDP member Nizam-ud-din Bhat in the Assembly.

As many as 210 terrorists have been provided monetary incentives admissible under surrender policy in the form of cash and stipend, he added.

Out of these, 200 have been accorded benefit under the new surrender policy of 2004, Omar said, while the remaining ten surrendered militants have been benefited under surrender policy of 1997.

Moreover, 27 surrendered militants have been brought under security cover in the state, he said.
