ESS AHMAD
ANANTNAG, Jan 3: While Pulwama returned to normal after two days of shutdown, Tral town and Rajpora areas of the district observed a complete shutdown for the third running day Wednesday over the killing of two local militants in an operation by the government forces on Sunday.

Three militants belonging to Jaish-i-Mohammad had carried out a deadly Fidayeen attack on a CRPF camp in Lethpora area of Pulwama on the weekend hours on Sunday killing five CRPF men and injuring three others. All the three militants were later killed in an operation launched by the forces. Two of the local slain were identified as Fardeen Ahmad Khan of Tral and Manzoor Ahmad Baba of Drobgam Pulwama while their associate was a Pakistani national.

The killings triggered a complete shutdown in district Pulwama forces two running days. Though Pulwama town resumed the business today, Tral and Rajpora townships of the district remained shut for third day to mourn the killings. All the shops, business offices and private offices remained shut in these areas while traffic was off the roads.

Meanwhile, a cordon and search operation was launched by the forces in Gundi Jaffar village of southern Anantnag district Wednesday. Local and official sources said that the forces including army and special operations group (SOG) of police laid a siege to the village in the afternoon following an input about the presence of militants. The forces, locals said, carried out house to house searches in the village and called off the operation after no contact was established with the militants.
