Security forces continue combing the jungles of Rajouri to locate Pakistani infiltrators

JAMMU: Monday continued its search operations in the dense forest belt along the LoC and Kashmir, launched after the murder of two Army soldiers in a confrontation with Pakistani infiltrators, authorities said.

In an attempt to locate the infiltrators, the forces combed the Dabud area in the Nowshera sector on Monday, they said.

Search operations have been carried out so far in the Khodi, Darath, Moghaldaye and Potha district areas, they said.

Last Wednesday, two Army soldiers were killed in a shootout with heavily armed Pakistani infiltrators who were intercepted in the Khari Thrayat forest while trying to sneak into India from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
