Life in Hajin town of Bandipora district was paralyzed on Thursday after forces cordoned off Khos Mohalla to nab the militants who according to them were hiding inside a house.
The troopers from 13 RR Manasbal, SOG Sumbal and Bandipora continued to target the house where militants were allegedly holed up. However, despite the repeated fire shots on part of troopers, militants didn’t respond. The forces personnel even destroyed the house of a local Sanaullah after they planted an IED to exterminate the suspected militants.
Srinagar based Army spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel NN Joshi told CNS that they have not recovered body of any militant. “Operation is still going on. We have started the generators and the area has been fenced to foil escaping attempts of militants. So far, we have not recovered any dead body,” he said adding that three suspected militants are believed to be trapped inside the house.
