Srinagar : Security forces on Sunday averted major attacks by recovering four Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in the frontier Kashmir district of Kupwara.
Official sources said that following specific information, a joint Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) was launched by 41 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) and police in the Ladriwan area in Kupwara.
