The Indian security forces, in a joint operation on Monday, busted a major terrorist hideout in Jammu and Kashmir's hilly Doda district and recovered a cache of arms and ammunition, an army spokesman said.

A huge quantity of war-like stores was unearthed from the hideout of the militants. 

"During the joint operation by security forces, a major terrorist hideout was busted in Baiyaru Padar Forest of Bhaderwah Tehsil in Doda district and a huge quantity of war-like stores were seized. 

"Based on a specific inputs, a massive joint search operation was launched by the security forces in the highly dense and thick forests on the higher ridges of Bhadarwah tehsil. A huge cache of arms and ammunition, equipment and logistic support items were found concealed in a natural cave next to a water source," defence spokesman, Lt. Col. Manish Mehta told IANS here.

The major items recovered included an AK-47 rifle, a 9mm Chinese Pistol, a under-barrel grenade launcher (UBGL) with 22 UBGL grenades, 11 AK-47 magazines, 1,620 AK-47 rounds, an AK-47 silencer, 15 RPG Rounds, 150 Pikka rifle rounds, eight Chinese grenades, 36 hand grenades and 11 detonators.

Following the ‘surgical strikes’ carried out by the Indian Army on terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir on September 29, the BSF has reportedly foiled at least 15 infiltration bids along the international border.

According to reports, most of cross-border firing by Pakistani army has been taking place in the Jammu sector, especially during the night when Pak Rangers provide covering fire to help terrorists infiltrate into the Indian territories.

Also, it was reported on Monday that Lashkar-e-Taiba is planning a massive strike in India. At least eight to nine terrorists are likely to be a part of the operation, planned by LeT chief Hafiz Saeed, and the Pakistani army is allegedly helping them infiltrate the border.
