Bandipora: Three soldiers were injured in an accidental exchange of gunfire during a cordon and search operation (CASO) in a forest area of this north Kashmir district.

Army sources told Kashmir Reader that three soldiers sustained minor injuries when two search parties mistakenly opened fire at each other at Dani Behak forests of Chandaji here.

The injured soldiers have been removed to the hospital. Their condition is said to be stable.

SSP Bandipora, Sheikh Zulfikar told Kashmir Reader that police have sent a team to the spot to verify the facts.

“Since the area is remote and communication is an issue, it takes time to collect the details,” he said.
