Five service rifles were snatched away by separatist guerrillas from TV tower guards in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district, police said on Monday. According to the police the militants attacked the guards posted at a Low Power Transmitter station of public service broadcaster Doordarshan in Dalvash village late Sunday night.

As reported by Hindustan Times, a police official said, “Militants in combat uniform barged into the guard room of TV tower at Dalvash in Dooru area of Anantnag district at around 12.30 AM and overpowered the cops guarding the installation,” the police official said.

An alert has been sounded and all the entry and exit points leading to Dooru village were sealed along with massive search operations that have been launched to locate the gunmen and the weapons. “A hunt has been launched to nab the suspected rebels,” sources added. (HT)
