Pulwama: The security forces on Wednesday launched a cordon and search operation in Puchal village of South Kashmir's Pulwama district.

A police official said that late in the night at around 11 pm, army, police and CRPF launched a cordon and search operation in the village following inputs about the presence of militants.
