Fresh firing erupted on Wednesday in the woods in the Bandipora, where a Cordoned and Search Operation (CASO) continued for the past five days against a group of militants hiding there, official sources said.

They said when the security forces were moving deep into the forest area this morning in Bandipora in north Kashmir, militants hiding there opened indiscriminate firing with automatic weapons. Security forces also retaliated ensuing in an encounter.

They said with the first light this morning, security forces resumed searches in the forest, where a group of militants are hiding. The operation was halted last night and resumed this morning, they said, adding that more troops from other nearby camps have also joined the searches.
