In an audio clip released after the controversy involving Major Leetul Gogoi and a Kashmiri woman at a hotel here, the Hizbul Mujahideen has asked girls from the valley to desist from coming into contact with Army personnel as the former were being used as “honey trap” to catch militants.
“We have received information that the Army is luring girls and using them to spy on mujahideen. The Army is blackmailing girls and pitting them against us,” he said in the audio clip that has gone viral in the Kashmir valley.
In the audio clip, Naikoo accused the Army of “sponsoring tours as a weapon to create a web of spies” and warned parents to desist from sending their daughters to such tours.
As part of its ‘sadbhavana’ (goodwill) mission, the Army, among other things, takes school children from the valley to various places of the country.
Taking exception to such programmes, Naikoo warned, “We will not spare those parents who send their girls on Army tours. Teachers, too, will face the brunt if they force students to undertake Army tours…I urge youth not to fall prey to army’s tactics and become informers.”
“We Warn all the teacher who force students to go on the Army tours, we will not spare them”, Naikoo said.
“We will not spare those parents and teachers who allow their children to go on tours which are directly or indirectly connected to army,” he warned.
