Kulgam CASO called off after militants flee

Srinagar

Cordon and Search Operation (CASO), launched by forces in southern Kashmir district of Kulgam, was called off in the wee hours of Saturday after holed up militants reportedly fled following brief firing besides protests by locals.

Reports said that the operation was called off after no fresh contact was established with the militants during the massive searches in Churath village of Qazigund in Kulgam district.

The CASO was launched on Friday evening following a tip off about the presence of two to three militants in the area. There was also brief firing when the security forces were sealing exit points, sources said.
