A 65 year old woman identified as Saja Begum and a youth have been injured in the intense clashes that erupted in the Kar Mohallah of Sirnoo in South Kashmir’s Pulwama District.

The Massive Clashes erupted during a CASO launched in the Kar gam locality of Sirnoo area in South Kashmir’s Pulwama District.

Locals told The Kashmiriyat that the duo were shifted to the nearby hospital for treatment from where they have been referred to Srinagar for treatment.

Sources told The Kashmiriyat that 55 RR of Indian Army, Jammu Kashmir Police and CRPF laid down the Search operation jointly.

“The Operation was launched after troopers received a specific input about Militant movement in the area,” Sources said.

Hundreds of youth hit the streets when the Anti Militancy operation was launched and threw stones on troops amid intense pro Freedom sloganeering.

The forces fired tear smoke shells and also fired in the air to disperse protesters.

The clashes were going on when this report was filed.

Sirnoo is the native area of Zahoor Ahmed Thokar, the Army man who decamped with a rifle during duty in July last year.
