Dog quad and bomb disposal squad have also reached the location. According to reports, two terrorists linked to terrorist organization Al-Qaeda have been arrested by the ATS.
The commandos have reportedly blocked the lane.
Media coverage of live operation questioned by netizens
Netizens have raised eyebrows on the live reporting of the ongoing search operations. Several news channels are streaming live scenes of the commandos’ position at the scene, putting the whole operation in jeopardy.
हद होती है अभी ATS का ऑपरेशन खत्म नही हुआ है जिस घर मे आतंकवादी छुपे हुए है उसी घर के बाहर की पूरी स्क्यूरटी ये न्यूज़ वाले बाहर से live दिखा रहे है । 😡😡 क्या न्यूज़ चैनल वालो ने 2008 मुम्बई हमले से कुछ नही सीखा? 😠😠 #searchoperation #Lucknow @AmitShahOffice @AmitShah @aajtak pic.twitter.com/7UxLBqV3jv— मनीष शर्मा भारद्वाज🇮🇳 (@manishs00934070) July 11, 2021
Why news channels are broadcasting ATS operations live? #Lucknow— ChitRang Patel (@Chitrang0003) July 11, 2021
Reportedly, similar reporting tactics were highly criticized during the 2008 Mumbai terror attack when several news channels showed how commandos were proceeding to eliminate the terrorists. Their live feed allegedly made it easier for the terrorists to counter security forces’ action against them.
This is an ongoing operation. More details awaited.
