The Police Sunday appealed to the public to avoid thronging the Sunjwan Army camp area where an encounter between the Army and militants was underway.
“I appeal to the public here not to throng the encounter sites. Several people had gathered here,” Superintendent of Police, Jammu (South), Sandeep Chaudhary said while speaking to reporters. He said the gathering of people at the site created problems for the security personnel engaged in the encounter.
It had to be ensured that people are not harmed and kept away, he said. Please avoid coming to encounter sites, he said.
Chaudhary also appealed to people to maintain communal harmony. “If some miscreants are engaged in creating communal tension, they will be taken to task,” he said.
