Security forces had launched a search operation in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora district after some people reported suspicious movements in the area.

Also, the schools in the adjoining areas where searches were underway were shut down for the day as a precautionary measure.

The Cordon and search operation (CASO) was launched by 45 Bn CRPF, Special Operations Group, and 13 RR after terrorists had fired on troops at around 5:15 a.m. in the morning.

Earlier on Sunday, a policeman lost his life in a militant attack at Soura in Srinagar.

The police personnel was guarding the residence of a Hurriyat Conference (M) leader as a militant attacked him and decamped with his service rifle at Soura in the outskirts of Srinagar.

This was the second attack in a row after a policeman was killed while guarding Charar-e-Sherief in the central Kashmir's Budgam district on Sunday afternoon.
