"This is not a trade by barter as some media reports it which is not fair but it is a genuine attempt to help those bandits who has repented and wants to live a normal life like every one else, this is to empower them." The statement said.

"Some of this bandits who wants to repent were cow owners before taking up arms, they sold the cows to buy these guns and giving them some cows in exchange for the weapon is a way to encourage them and make them better people." This is what the state government's statement read.
