Indian Army, Police and CRPF in a joint "cordon and search" operation on Sunday found no terrorists in Malangpora area of Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir. The operation was carried out by the forces to nab the terrorists.

In a similar incident, Security forces on Saturday gunned down two Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants, including commander Bashir Lashkari in Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Saturday, police said. Bashir Lashkari was behind the killing of six policemen last month.
