Hussain said that as it was a civilian area, the Army couldn’t retaliate effectively due to apprehension of civilian casualties in the dark, resulting in the escape of the terrorists. Search operations were launched early Monday morning but had to be called off.
Imtiaz Hussain said, “They used civilians as shield as it was a civilian area, we could not retaliate properly and they fled. Terrorists managed to escape as it was dark and army couldn’t retaliate effectively due to apprehension of civilian casualty.”
The Army and J&K police’s Special Operations Group personnel conducted search operations in the area around the army camp. An injured jawan is undergoing treatment at the Rashtriya Rifles hospital. He’s said to be out of danger.
