JAMMU: Security forces in a joint operation on Sunday recovered a huge cache of grenades hidden in a well-concealed natural hideout in Phagla area of Jammu & Kashmir’s Poonch district.
“Based on a specific input that terrorists were planning to target security forces on NH-144A, a well-coordinated joint operation was launched by Army’s Rashtriya Rifles and police. They recovered 19 Chinese grenades during searches,” said Jammu-based defence spokesperson Lt Col Devender Anand.
He added, “This operation has averted a likely major plan to attack security forces. Security forces and J&K Police are operating together against terrorism and are committed towards stability in the region.”
This is the second successful anti-terror operation in less than a week. Earlier, security forces in a joint search operation on May 6 had busted a terrorist hideout in Chokkian Ghat area of Doda and recovered 35kg of RDX.
