After a night of firing between Indian Army jawans and terrorists in Baramulla, SSP Imtiaz Hussain on Monday said that the terrorists had used civilians as shield and therefore they were unable to retaliate properly.
“They used civilians as shield as it was a civilian area, we could not retaliate properly and they fled. Terrorists managed to escape as it was dark and army couldn’t retaliate effectively due to apprehension of civilian casualty.”
Terrorists had attacked the battalion headquarters of 46 Rashtriya Rifles at stadium colony in Baramulla. The firing which started on Sunday night, killed one jawan and injured another.
A search operations were launched early Monday morning but had to be called off.
