Clashes in Pulwama
SRINAGAR, Jan 8: Clashes erupted in Pulwama after rumours spread in the town that a couple of militants are trapped in Tahab village of the district.

Earlier, security forces resorted to firing in the air after a vehicle failed to stop at a Naka crossing in Tahab village.

An official said that a vehicle was signalled to stop at a naka in Bongam Tahab for checking. “It did not stop following which forces fired some shots in the air to stop the vehicle,” he said.

The official said that the driver managed to flee from the spot leaving poppy straw behind.

Reports said that shortly after the incident security cordoned off the area and launched a search operation. The news about search operation and the alleged trapping of militants spread in the town where youth pelted stones on police station. The security forces lobbed tear smoke shells to disperse. The clashes disrupted life in the town while shopkeepers lowered their shutters. After couple of hours of disruption, life limped back to normalcy at around 4 when traders again opened up their shops.

A police official said no militants were present in Tahab Village while those, who dropped poppy straw from the vehicle, were probably drug peddlers.
