About 100 youths from Kashmir who have gone to Pakistan with visas in the last three years are not known. This has raised concerns for security agencies. He fears that these young people are working as a sleeper cell by getting caught in the clutches of terrorist organizations.
Some of the youths have got clues about their involvement in terrorist activities. Security agencies have collected information about such youth from the Bagha border and New Delhi airport and other concerned authorities.
Out of 100 some of them have returned, but are missing. No one is aware of them. This apprehension ceased at that time when five terrorists were killed by security forces in Kashmir's Handwara in April last year. One of the local youth went to Pakistan in 2018 but did not return. After April 1, Shopian, Kulgam, and Bunwa of Anantnag joined the infiltrating terrorists.
