Srinagar, Nov 9: A cordon and search operations was launched at multiple places in south and central Kashmir on Thursday as part of security forces' efforts to flush out militants from the Valley.
The anti-militancy operations are going on in over a dozen villages in Shopian, Anantnag and Pulwama districts of south Kashmir and in some parts of Budgam district in central Kashmir, a police official said.
"House to house searches are going on but so far no arrests have been made," the official said.
The three districts of south Kashmir along with Kulgam are worst affected by the recent surge in militant activities, the official said.
Three terrorists were killed and one security personnel lost his life in an encounter between security forces and terrorists in Pulwama district's Aglar Kandi in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.
