Armed forces detected and neutralised an improvised explosive device on Sunday following inputs about an attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian district, police said.
They had inputs about the attack and the IED was recovered after intense searches were launched this morning, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Shopian, Amrit Pal Singh said.
The IED was “detected and neutralised between Sugan and Turkhwangam (areas in Shopian)”, he said.
“Police and the Army were aware of likely attempts to use an IED against forces. However, forces are committed to foil all attempts,” Singh said.
