Searches launched in Uri sector after suspicious activity
Srinagar, Feb 11: A massive combing operation was launched by government forces in Uri sector of north Kashmir after an Army camp sentry claimed noting suspicious movement and opened fire, police said Monday.
A police official said that during Sunday night, a sentry of the Army artillery unit in Rajervani, Uri fired few a rounds after observing suspicious movement.
The official said the area was sealed and search operations were going on to rule out any act of sabotage.
“So far, we have not been able to find anything in the area. Since the terrain is rocky with large boulders, the sanitation exercise will take some time,” the official added.
Local reports said that in the morning bullet-ridden bodies of couple of dogs were found near the camp. They say the movement of the strays might have rattled the sentry, who fired fearing militant movement.
