Srinagar, May 26 : Government forces on Thursday launched a cordon-and-search operation in Harwan area on City outskirts, days after militants killed three cops here.
A police official told that SOG and army’s 5 RR launched a search operation after receiving an input about the presence of some militants in Dhara belt of Harwan.
“The forces conducted extensive searches in the area for about over one hour but there was no contact with militants,” he said, adding that the operation was called off later.
Pertinently, similar operation was launched by forces two weeks ago at nearby Dachigam forests. But no militant was spotted by forces personnel. (GNS)
