Srinagar, June 20 (GNS): Government forces this evening laid concertina wires and installed generator sets for lighting purpose in Pazalpora village of Sopore Town of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district where earlier a search and cordon operation was launched.

Sources told news agency GNS additional reinforcements of army and Special Operation Group of police have been rushed to Pazalpora as chances of encounter between forces and militants believed to be holed up are rife.
