J&K terror crackdown: Massive search op underway in Baramulla

Srinagar: A massive house-to-house search operation is underway in Baramulla, Jammu and Kashmir after security forces received intelligence of an active terror hideout.

One such operation was held earlier as well in which Chinese and Pakistan flags were recovered besides some arms and ammunition.

According to reports, security agencies also wanted to send a message after Chinese flags were waved by protesters here.

Meanwhile, the Army and the J&K Police are sweeping through the area to locate after receiving wind of untoward elements as the entire city of Baramulla is on lockdown.

Earlier, terror group Laskar-e-Taiba had warned the Baramulla SHO for carrying out an operation in which at least 44 were arrested for terror-related activities.

The crackdown was part of a joint operation by the Army, the BSF, the CRPF and police in several localities, including Qazi Hamam, Ganai Hamam, Taweed Gunj and Jamia, considered safe havens for terrorists.
