Srinagar: Security forces on Wednesday began a massive cordon and search operation in over 12 villages in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district, officials said.
Police sources said security forces including the army, paramilitary and the special operations group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir Police have started a massive cordon and search operation.
"The operation was launched following intelligence inputs about the presence of militants in these areas," a police officer said.
Such operations have been launched in south Kashmir areas in the past as well.
The main objective of these operations, according to informed sources, is to keep the militants on the run and force them out of densely populated villages and towns.
Exercising India's rights to respond to comments made by Pakistan and the OIC on Kashmir, Badhe said it does not need lessons from a "failed state" like Pakistan which is the "epicentre of terrorism and worst abuser of human rights".
