Shopian (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Mar 2 (ANI): Sentry at Dachoo camp of 44 Rashtriya Rifles noticed suspicious movement and fired shots in the air on Saturday.
This comes as tensions between India and Pakistan have heightened following the February 14 terror attack in Pulwama, and cross-border firing that ensued subsequently on various posts along the Line of Control (LoC).
A search operation is underway in the area.
Earlier this week, two terrorists belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), including one from Pakistan, were killed in an encounter that took place between terrorists and security forces.
The encounter had come a day after India carried out air strikes at a JeM camp in Balakot in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. (ANI)
