Government forces on Wednesday launched a cordon-and-search operation at Sheeri forests of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
Reports said that a joint team of 46 RR, CRPF and SOG launched the cordon at Teripora forest area of Sheeri.
Some fire shots were fired by the militants soon after the joint team of forces intensified the combing operation during the cordon, they said.
SSP Baramulla Imtiyaz Hussain said that the search operation was launched following some suspicious movement in the area.
“So far no contact has been established and the operation is under way,” Hussain said. (GNS)
