Stone pelting incidents in Jammu and Kashmir have declined significantly from 2,600 in 2016 to barely a few dozen in the first half of 2019, officials said Sunday.
As per the report, the arrests involved in stone pelting incidents also have come down from over 10,500 to just about a hundred.

The Home Ministry statistics say that there were 2,653 incidents of stone pelting in 2016 for which 10,571 miscreants were arrested by police.

However, among the arrested just 276 were sent to jail and others were let off with warnings.
The killing of Burhan Wani in 2016 saw a long turmoil in Kashmir, a Home Ministry official said, there were 1,412 incidents of stone pelting in 2017 in which 2,838 trouble-makers were arrested and 63 of them were sent to jail, he said.

In 2018, there were 1,458 incidents of stone pelting in which 3,797 miscreants were arrested and 65 of them were sent to jail, as per the statistics.
