RAJOURI: Village defence guards on Sunday opened fire, observing suspicious movement in a village in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, officials said.

No one was injured in the firing that took place around 4 am in upper Dhangri, a village where terrorists killed seven persons in an attack early this year, officials said.

The VDGs fired around two dozen rounds upon noticing some suspicious movement outside a house in the village, they said.

Police and army have launched a cordon and search operation in the village and adjoining areas as a precautionary measure, officials added.
