Forces detain father-son duo during CASO in Hajin

Government forces on Tuesday detained two persons during a cordon and search operation (CASO) in Vijpara village of Hajin in Bandipora district.

Sources said that Muhammad Ayoub Lone and his son Yawar Lone – residents of Vijpara – were detained for questioning after night-long CASO ended.

Army’s 13 RR unit, SOG of Jammu and Kashmir police and CRPF cordoned off Vijpara locality following inputs about presence of militants in the area last night.
