Police  said that searches were conducted in Sheeraz Colony Ganie Near Ration Ghat Soura and Shalbaf Mohalla New Colony Jinab Sahab Anchar Soura.

Police said that raids were conducted “to dismantle and disturb the nexus between terrorists and their associates”.

Reportedly, the SIU recovered various incriminating materials, which are being investigated, during those raids.

“Such raids are made under advisory from senior formations of the J&K Police department and need to be conducted on the basis of technical and scientific grounds so as to conclude UL(P)A cases in the interest of justices. The raids will continue in future also for the logical conclusion of all UL(P)A cases,” the official explained.
