Clashes erupted in Rahmoo village of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Wednesday after government forces launched a cordon-and-search-operation (CASO).

Reports said that youth took to streets and pelted the forces with stones to disrupt the anti-militant operation.

The forces, they said, responded by firing teargas shells.

An official said that searches were launched in the area after “specific” inputs about the presence of militants.

More details are awaited.
