Huge cache of arms, ammunition recovered in Rajouri: Indian Army

 A joint operation by Indian Army and Jammu and Kashmir Police led to the recovery of a large cache of weapons and ammunition from a dense forest area of Rajouri district, officials said on Monday.

The weapons were found in the forest areas of Khawas Tehsil in Rajouri district.

The Indian army said as a result of the joint operation the ‘desperate plan of the militant organisations to revive activities in Rajouri and Reasi districts suffered a major setback’.

“Based on specific information from a reliable source, a joint operation was undertaken by Indian Army and J&K Police today in the general area of Chikakhet in Gadyog forest of Khawas region of Rajouri District, South of Pir Panjal ranges,” the army said.

“During the search operations war-like stores have been recovered. It included one AK 47 rifle, three magazines of AK 47, 94 rounds of AK 47 ammunition, two Chinese pistols, two Chinese pistol magazines, eight rounds of pistol ammunition, five UBGL grenades, one Kenwood radio set and three radio set antennae.
