Jammu, November 20
A two-kg Improvised Explosive Device (IED) was found planted by suspected terrorists on a road in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar district on Monday evening, officials said.
The IED was subsequently defused by the experts, thus averting a possible terror attack in the hill district, the officials said.
They said a joint patrol party of the Army and Police noticed the IED planted on the roadside along the Kishtwar-Batote national highway.
The traffic on the highway was immediately suspended and a bomb disposal squad was summoned, which later safely defused the explosive substance, the officials said.
They said a case was registered and a hunt was launched to apprehend the terrorists responsible for planting the IED.
