KHUZDAR: As many as 144 Baloch militants laid down their arms on Monday, accepting government’s amnesty scheme.
According to Geo News, four commanders of different militant organizations were also among the militants to give up arms.
“We will fulfill all the promises we have made to the militants who have surrendered,” said Commissioner of Kalat district in Balochistan.
The government has promised financial assistance to youths who laid down weapons and abandoned violence against the state.
Last year on Independence Day, during a ceremony hosted by the Balochistan government, over 400 militants laid down their weapons and vowed to shun violence.
