Police on Thursday said the operation against militants has been resumed at Hallpora village of Gadool area of Kokernag in South Kashmir’s Anantnag.

"In solemn tribute to the unwavering valour of Col Manpreet Singh, Major Ashish Dhonak and DSP Humayun Bhat who laid down their lives leading from the front during this ongoing operation, our forces persist with unwavering resolve as they encircle 2 LeT terrorists, including Uzair Khan".
