Poonch: The traffic movement on Jammu-Poonch highway was stopped this morning amid an ongoing massive search operation in Nar forest area of Mendhar in Poonch district for the last few days by armed forces, officials said.

They said that a combing operation was launched by the army several days back on the apprehension of the presence of militants in the dense forest area.

As a precautionary measure, the vehicular traffic on the highway between Bhimber Gali and Jaranwali Gali was suspended, they said. The traffic on the highway was also stopped on Thursday after it was restored yesterday morning at around 8100 hours, they said.

A police official confirmed that the highway was closed again and said that the search operation is going on. (GNS)
