Clashes erupt after forces lay siege to Shopian villages


Clashes broke out between the forces and youth on Sunday after government forces launched a Cordon and search operation in two villages of south Kashmir’s Shopian district.

Reports said that soon after forces cordoned off Tekkipora and Ronipora villages of Shopian at a time, the youth took to the streets and pelted government forces with stones to disrupt the CASO. Forces retaliate with tear gas shells to disperse the protesting youth.

Heavy contingents of forces have been deployed in the areas and search operation was going on, sources said.

More details are awaited.
