Shopian: Fire broke out in a cowshed after a tear gas shell fired by government forces exploded inside it at Nadigam village amid clashes between government forces and youth on Friday.
Earlier this afternoon a joint team of forces launched cordon and search operation in the village after inputs about the presence of militants in the village. Door to door searches amid clashes are underway.
Witnesses told Kashmir Reader that reason of fire was the shell that exploded inside the cowshed containing fodder and wood. They said that locals took out their spraying motors and were seen dousing the fire.
