Srinagar: burst teargas shells and resorted to lathicharge to disperse demonstrators who hit the streets when a search operation was launched against the militants in south district of Shopian today. Official sources said that security forces and Special Operation Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir police launched a joint operation at Pinjoora in Shopian following a tip-off about the presence of militants.

Security forces resorted to lathicharge which had no impact on demonstrators, they said, adding that later security forces burst teargas shells to chase them away.
