The army and Jammu and Kashmir police today launched a massive crackdown in over a dozen villages in Shopian district, around 70 km southwest of Srinagar.

The crackdown has been launched after killing of five policemen and two bank guards by militants early this week and looting of two banks by the militants on Wednesday.

According to the sources, the Army 62 Rashtriya Rifles (RR), 55 RR and 44 RR along with Jammu and Kashmir police force launched “area domination” early Wednesdaymorning.  The search operation is being carried in  Chillipora, Sugan, Turkwangam, Heff Shirmal, Dragad, Maldair, Dachoo, Heff kgudi, Nully poshwari, Darazpora and other adjoining hamlets.

The militants Wednesday looted nearly Rs 6 lakh from two branches of Ellaquai Dehati Bank (EDB) in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

Earlier this week, militants killed five policemen and two bank guards when they intercepted a cash-delivery van in Kulgam district.

On Wednesday Jammu and Kashmir Police announced a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh for information on Umer Majid, a Hizbul Mujahideen militant. The police say Majid is responsible for the killing of seven persons, including five policemen, in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district earlier this week. Police have pasted posters of Majid on walls announcing the cash reward that may lead the security agencies to him.
