The spokesman said that after three days of search, a hideout was found along the Nala on 29 Sep 2022, very close to the Line of Control. On digging, a huge weapon cache of 07 AK Rifles, 02 Chinese Pistols, 13 Chinese Grenades, 21 AK magazines, 04 pistol magazines, 1190 AK ammunition and 132 Pistol ammunition were recovered.

“Recovery of this large size of War Like Stores close to the Line of Control has given a major setback to the terrorist groups attempting to fuel violence in Kashmir Valley and has prevented unrest and loss of innocent lives. According to police sources, these weapons and War Like Stores were likely dropped at Line of Control for being picked up by terrorists and anti-national elements on the Indian side and further transported to Bandipora and other areas in hinterland”, he said.
