Police sources said that acting on a tip off, security forces jointly carried out an operation in the border Kupwara district during which two JeM terrorists were arrested.

“One AK-47 rifle, one AK magazine, two grenades, 30 AK rounds and cash worth Rs 7 lakh were recovered from their possessions.

“Further investigation is on”, police sources added.

On the other hand, a major tragedy was averted on Thursday when the security forces detected an improvised explosive device (IED) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

Police said security forces, including the counter insurgency Rashtriya Rifles and local police recovered an IED on the main road in the Watergam area of Baramulla.

“Traffic on the road has been stopped. The bomb disposal squad is defusing the IED”, police said.

IEDs are planted by militants on roads and highways in Kashmir to target convoys of the security forces and cavalcades of VIPs.

Before the movement of convoys or any VIP is cleared, road opening parties (RoPs) of the army and paramilitary forces equipped with bomb detecting equipment and assisted by sniffer dogs are moved out to ensure that the passage of the security force convoys and VIP movement is secured.
