Sindh to de-radicalise 300 militants

Staff Report

KARACHI -- The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of Sindh Police recently recommended forwarding 31 terrorism cases to military courts and de-radicalising about 300 militants held in various Sindh jails, media reported.

CTD Additional Inspector General (AIG) Sanaullah Abbasi made the recommendation in a letter to the provincial Home Department, Dunya TV reported Monday (January 2).

To de-radicalise incarcerated militants, the CTD is planning to conduct psychological profiles, Abbasi said Sunday (January 1), according to Dawn.

It is seeking to sign a memorandum of understanding with the University of Karachi or another institution so that psychiatrists will examine and rehabilitate the militants, Abbasi said.

The CTD plans to establish the rehabilitation centre at the Razzaqabad police training centre in Karachi, he said.
