Security forces on Sunday detected an improvised explosive device (IED) on the outskirts of Srinagar, averting a tragedy.

Police said the IED was found in Maloora area. "A bomb disposal squad is defusing the IED," a police officer said .

On Saturday, the security forces had defused a powerful IED on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road some distance away from where Sunday's IED was detected.

After militants killed four policemen in Sopore town last week by detonating an IED, senior police officers worry that more such devices are likely to be used by the militants in the coming days.
