Jammu—Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has announced amnesty to first-time stone pelters, officials said on Thursday.

In a Twitter post on Wednesday night, Mufti said: “It gives me immense satisfaction to restart the process of withdrawing FIRs against first-time offenders of stone pelting.

“My government had initiated the process in May 2016 but it was unfortunately stalled due to the unrest later that year.
