Srinagar (NVI): Terrorists attacked a joint party of Police and CRPF at the main town in South Kashmir’s Shopian today and managed to flee from the spot, police said.

No loss of life or injury was reported in the incident.

A police official said that militants fired a few bullets from a distance at the joint teams of police at main town Shopian and managed to escape from the spot.

“The forces didn’t retaliate as the place witnesses huge rush of people,” he said, adding that the entire area has been cordoned off and a massive search operation is launched.

“An alert has been sounded in the area and forces deployed at all entry and exit points are maintaining a tight vigil,” the officer said.
