A massive search operation is going on in the woods for the second day Thursday in the Kupwara distric against militants who killed an army man yesterday, sources said.
An army man was killed after a search party was attacked by suspected militants with automatic weapons on Wednesday. However, the militants managed to escape from the area after the attack.
Sources said that it was not immediately clear whether it was an infiltration attempt or not.
Sources said that reinforcement was rushed to the area from different nearby camps to seal all exit points, and so far, no contact was established with the militants hiding in the woods of Goguldara Bahak.
