Three days after the gruesome Dangri massacre in which six unarmed civilians including two minors were killed in twin terror attacks, the Union Government has decided to deploy additional forces into the twin border districts of Poonch and Rajouri in Jammu and Kashmir.

These forces have been rushed to the twin border districts to launch massive combing and search operations to flush out terrorists hiding in the forest areas of this mountainous belt of Jammu province.

Reports said that in a bid to enhance security setup in the twin border districts of Rajouri and Poonch, authorities on Wednesday are deploying a large number of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) companies to secure minority areas in the region.
