War-like stores recovered in Kashmir

February 02, 2007 14:50 IST

The Border Security Force on Thursday evening unearthed a hideout and recovered war-like stores in the south Kashmir woods, a police spokesman said.

He said the 53 Battalion of the BSF, acting on a tip-off about the arms dump, conducted a search operation in the woods at Shikargah in Tral, about 35 km from Srinagar.

However, after a long search of the forest area, the BSF troops unearthed a hideout. The arms and ammunition recovered from the specially built hideout included about 12000 rounds of ammunition, five kg high-quality explosive, one hand grenade, one under barrel grenade launcher, two detonators and two binoculars. No one has been arrested yet.
