Jammu: Security Forces on Wednesday launched a search operation in forest area of Poonch district in Jammu division, police sources said.

They said that the joint searches were started by police, army and CRPF in Khanitera Dilera forest area of Poonch in the morning.

“The searches are still continuing,” they said.

Pertinent to mention here that, following the killing of seven civilians on Jan 1, 2023 in  Dhangri village of Rajouri district, more than 50 people have been detained so far for questioning on January 10 in connection with the attack,  as a massive search operation to track down the terrorists behind the strike.

Besides, the Jammu and Kashmir administration has strengthened Village Defence Guards (VDGs) comprising local volunteers and the border grid to keep a tight vigil on possible infiltration routes.

They said police posters announcing a reward of Rs 10 lakh to anyone giving credible information about the terrorists have also come up at various places in the district.
