Search Operation Launched In Poonch


Jammu: The government forces on Thursday launched search operations in the Krishna Ghati sector bordering Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Based on specific information about the movement of suspected persons, a joint team of security forces on Thursday afternoon launched the searches in Krishna Ghati sector of the Poonch district," official sources here said.

They said that no contact has been established so far but search teams have cordoned off the area.

Counter-insurgency operation is already in progress for the last more than one month in Bhata Durian area on Rajouri-Poonch boundaries that started on October 11 after a fierce gunfight broke out between security forces and heavily armed militants.

So far nine Army personnel including two Junior Commissioned Officers have been killed in the encounter in the area.
