Earlier on Friday, arms and ammunition, including IEDs and grenades, were recovered by security forces in the Dara Peer Makal area of Thanamandi in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district. The explosives were recovered by a joint team of the Jammu and Kashmir Police and the Indian Army’s 48 Rashtriya Rifles during a search operation, they added.

“Four remote IEDs (improvised explosive devices), six UBGL (Under Barrel Grenade Launcher) grenades, five detonators, four fuses, two small box packages and other unnamed items were recovered from the area,” the officials said.
