After the sighting of four suspects at the Industrial Growth Centre (IGC), Phase I in Samba, by some locals, security agencies sounded a high alert here today.
According to information, dhaba owner Kuldeep Raj informed the police that he had spotted a group of four masked persons wearing black clothes and carrying backpacks around5 am. The police and the Army launched a search operation and a cordon was laid. No suspect could be traced and apprehended during the five-hour-long search operation.
Senior Superintendent of Police, Samba, Anil Mangotra said following the inputs of sighting of suspects, the police and Army rushed to the spot and launched a joint search operation in the area. Besides beginning a combing operation, teams also visited several industries and enquired about the workers to trace the suspects.
“We have scanned the footage of the CCTV cameras installed at the entrance of some industries to identify the suspects, but no particular movement has been noticed in the footage. It seems that they (suspects) might be labourers who were returning from the Basantar river after attending the nature’s call,” the SSP said.
“However, we cannot rule out the possibility of suspicious movement of suspects. We are also examining the CCTV footage of other industries and talking to people to get more details. The security has been beefed up in the entire district,” he said.
