Govt forces’ crackdown in Srinagar area, door-to-door searches amid siege

The Indian government forces sealed an area in summer capital Srinagar late on Friday and conducted searches, reports said.

Residents of Natipora said the government forces launched a crackdown, sealing the area and didn’t allow anyone to move out.

Government forces conducted door-to-door searches and checked identification cards, locals said.

“The search operation was sudden and surprising,”  a local, who wished not to be named fearing the government forces, told a local news agency.

Last month, a police guard of Peoples Democratic Party member Haji Parvez was shot dead by militants in the same area.

A local youth who had joined the pro-freedom insurgents before the attack had released an audio in which he owned up the attack and announced his decision to join the militant ranks.
