Jammu and Kashmir: Security forces recover, destroy 250 detonators in Poonch district


A joint team of security forces late Saturday recovered 250 detonators in J&K’s Poonch district. The cache was later destroyed by the bomb disposal squad. The recovery came hours after an IED was found on the Jammu-Poonch highway and neutralised.

During a routine patrol, a joint team of the Army based in Jaranawali Gali and local police found a suspicious-looking bag hidden in some bushes along the roadside. “As per SOP, a bomb disposal squad from the Army and cops from DPL Poonch were called in immediately. The teams rushed to the spot and opened the bag to reveal 250 detonators inside,” said an official source.

“The bomb disposal squad destroyed all the detonators on the spot in a controlled explosion,” added the source. The area was cordoned off and a search was launched for more explosives till the time of going to press.
