Srinagar: The pre-dawn search operation by security forces on Tuesday in Kareemabad village of Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district has been called off.
No militant was found in the village during the cordon and search operation that started early in the morning.

Security forces in large numbers were carrying out a door-to-door search operation to flush out the hiding militants after receiving information about their presence in the village, the reports said.
