Armed forces have recovered a cache of arms and ammunition, including two pistols, during a search operation in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district, Army officials said on Monday.
A joint team of the Army and police launched a search operation in the Chhatru forest area on Sunday, they said.
During the search, they recovered a cache of arms containing two pistols, 40 rounds of ammunition, two wireless sets and other war-like stores, officials said.
Chhatru forest lies along the known movement route of militants between south Kashmir and Kishtwar, they said.
These caches have been created by militants in these remote areas to be used for destabilising the situation which is heading towards normalcy, they claimed.
The Army and police along with other forces deployed in Kishtwar have recovered IEDs, explosives, arms and ammunition in recent months.
