Mobile Internet Suspended In Poonch, Rajouri Districts

Jammu, Mobile Internet services were suspended in two districts of Poonch and Rajouri of J&K on Saturday as the security forces continued a massive operation in the twin districts.

Mobile Internet services were suspended in Poonch and Rajouri districts after the mysterious death of three persons in Bafliaz area where terrorists had targeted two Army vehicles on Thursday.

Five soldiers were killed and two injured in Thursday’s terror attack on an Army Gypsy and a truck in Dera Ki Gali of Bafliaz area.

The terrorists reportedly decamped with the service weapons of the slain soldiers.

Security forces launched a massive search operation in the densely forested areas of Poonch and Rajouri districts where reportedly a group of 30 terrorists is hiding.
