Srinagar: Security forces today recovered a powerful Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Pulwama district of South Kashmir, averting a major disaster.

The IED, weighing eight kgs, was fitted to a lighting gas cylinder when a joint search party of Police and Rashtriya Rifles unearthed it from an orchard in Jandwal village, 35 kms from here, a police spokesman said.

He said the IED was later safely defused by the Bomb disposal Squad.

A case was registered and a hunt has been launched to nab militants who had kept the IED to trigger an explosion, the spokesman said.
