Pathankot district police chief Vikas Sheel Soni told the media that the security agencies had launched a search operation in the border belt.

The suspected men stopped a Maruti Alto car belonging to Maskin Ali late on Sunday night and sought a lift. However, Ali and his friend sped away, suspecting that they could be terrorists.
