Indian Army averts 'major' terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir

The Indian Army on Saturday said they have averted a major terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir with the seizure of a huge cache of arms and ammunition in Kathua district. 

According to a defence spokesman, two AK assault rifles, a hand grenade, four magazines with 256 rounds and 59 rounds of sniper ammunition were seized during a joint operation by the Army and local police in the Billawar block.

The security forces conducted the operation after receiving inputs from military intelligence and “this recovery has averted a major terrorists strike planned in the Jammu region”, he said.

Defence sources said the arms and ammunition were wrapped in a polythene bag and dumped in an isolated area in a village for later use. 

Early on Saturday, security forces gunned down four terrorists in Pulwama district after receiving specific inputs about presence of militants in the region. This came a day after another terrorist was killed by security forces in Awantipora area.
