Forty Seven militants including two commanders belonging to banned militant organisations have surrendered to the government at a ceremony in Quetta.

The Balochistan Home Minister, Chief of Marri Tribe and DIG Frontier Corps were present on the occasion.

Later addressing a joint press conference, they said the youth working for militant organisations should join mainstream for durable peace, progress and prosperity of the province.

Home Minister said that the nationalist leaders living abroad should avoid patronising militancy in Balochistan. He asked them to return back to the country and join mainstream politics.

The militants belong to the United Baloch Army and Baloch Liberation Army.
