Bandits threaten to shoot down military choppers

22 November 2012, 11:32

Baragoi -  The Standard reports that, airstrike operation in Baragoi has been suspended following a threat by heavily armed bandits to shoot down any copter pursuing their hideouts.

And now elders are holding a meeting with top provincial security personnel to avert any confrontation until conclusive negotiations have been made.

Baragoi area is now a no-flying zone for Police copters since they are not armed, and should the bandits make good their threat, then copters would be brought down.
