Government forces on Monday launched a cordon-and-search-operation (CASO) in several orchards of south Kashmir's Shopian district.
An official said that forces launched a CASO in orchards of Amshipora, Chitterpora, Nowgam, Shamsipora and Ramnagri villages of the district.
He said that the operation was limited to orchards only.
"The operation was launched after specific inputs about the presence of militants in the area," he said.
More details awaited.
