SF search orchards in Shopian village

Security forces searched orchards in Heff Shirmal village of Shopian district on Saturday morning after receiving inputs about the presence of militant hideouts there, a police official said.

The search operation, conducted by Army, CRPF and Police, was called off after a few hours as no hideout was found in the area.

During the past few months, the security forces busted cave-like hiding places in orchards of Shopian and neighbouring Pulwama districts. Several gunfights between militants and the forces also took place in the farms.
