Militant hideout busted in J&K

Security forces on Wednesday busted a militant hideout in a forest area close to Hizbul commander Riyaz Naikoo's village, during a cordon and search operation in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district, police said.

The search operation was launched earlier in the day in the Badriwan forests of Awantipora area following specific information about militant presence.

"A militant hideout has been busted during this operation," a police officer said.

The hideout is close to Beighpora village, the ancestral village of Naikoo, who is at the top of security forces wanted list in south Kashmir.
