Jammu And Kashmir: Security Forces Discover Weapons And Explosives In Secret Tunnel
Several weapons were found hidden in the tunnel by security forces.
During a search operation in the forests of Shopian, security forces in Jammu And Kashmir came across a tunnel believed to have been made as a safe hiding place for militants active in the region. The security forces have reported that the tunnel was hiding several weapons and explosives, including AK-56 rifles, hand grenades and live rounds. The tunnel appears to be long enough to house a few people at a time.
Last month, Shopian also witnessed a deadly militant encounter in which at least three terrorists were eliminated, while weapons were also recovered from their hideout. It was a joint operation between the Jammu and Kashmir Police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). According to the police, the encounter broke out at the Turkwangam area of Shopian. Col. Rajesh Kalia, Srinagar-based defence spokesperson had said, “Three terrorists eliminated. Two AK-47 and one INSAS recovered till now. Joint Operation in progress.”
