Srinagar: Two civilians were injured in a clash with security forces during a cordon and search operation against terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian district today, police said.
Security forces launched a operation at Tangwari Tukra village early this morning after receiving information about the presence of militants there, a police official said.
As they started the search operation, a large number of people assembled and started hurling stones at them, he said.
He said they used force to disperse the protestors during which two people – Fayaz Ahmad Padder and Jehangir Ahmad Bhat – were injured.
Padder was shifted to SKIMS hospital after he received injury in his chest, they said. (PTI)
