Srinagar, Dec 18: The families in whose houses the encounter took place in Sopore are worried about the safety of some of their members as they have failed to locate their whereabouts.
Khursheed Ahmad of Saidpora told Greater Kashmir over telephone that they have no whereabouts of six members of the two families.
“We have no information about them since morning,” Khursheed said. He identified the family members as Zahoor Ahmad Dar, Mehraj Ahmad Dar, Aashiq Dar, Sajad Ahmad, Tabasum Akhter and Hajera Bagum.
SP Sopore, Imtiyaz Hussain Mir, told Greater Kashmir that they are safe. “They have been evacuated and are safe,” the SP said adding that it is very difficult for them to move out from the area as the gun-battle is on. “There is nothing to worry about,” he said.
However, Khursheed Ahmad said the telephones of his relatives are switched off and they have failed to contact them.
