Army chief warns Kashmir protesters against obstructing anti-militancy operations

Srinagar: Day after four army men were killed in two gunfights in north Kashmir, army Chief Bipin Rawat on Wednesday warned protesters against obstructing army’s operations in Kashmir.

“Those who obstruct our operations during encounters and are not supportive will be treated as overground workers of terrorists,” Indian Express quoted Rawat as saying.

He made the remark after paying tribute to forces’ personnel killed in encounters with militants in Kashmir on Tuesday.

Four Army personnel, including a Major, were killed in two separate encounters in Hajin and Kralgund Handwara areas of North Kashmir on Tuesday.
