Jammu, January 30

Two powerful Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) of 1.5 kg and 1 kg each were found in the border district of Kathua along the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway.

During an early morning search operation by the Special Operations Group (SOG) of Kathua district, the police recovered two suspicious objects packed in a polythene packet hidden in the bushes along the Bein Nalla near the cremation ground.

“Acting promptly, the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) was called to inspect the objects. Upon examination, it was revealed that both items were IEDs,” an official said.

Each IED was contained within a plastic bottle and consisted of components such as an electric detonator, a 9V battery (originating from Malaysia), a circuit, screws serving as splinters, and explosive material. Additionally, the plastic containers housing the IEDs were coated with Plaster of Paris.

“Recognising the potential danger, both IEDs were carefully and successfully dismantled on the spot by the police team, preventing any potential harm. The device was taken into possession after a controlled detonation. A case has been registered,” the official said.

Kathua is situated along the International Border (IB) with Pakistan and attempts of infiltration from the border fence are common. The police are investigating if the IEDs were meant for Kathua or were sent from Pakistan to be delivered elsewhere in the UT.
