"Security forces are working hard to bring stability in the state. Stone pelting has completely ended (in the Kashmir Valley)," Malik told reporters here at the Raj Bhawan.

On the issue of youths joining militant ranks, the governor said that only "one or two" youths have joined militancy in the last 50 days.
