The Army has seized around 30-kg of some contraband substance along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector, the police said on Sunday.

“On Saturday, alert troops along the LoC in Uri sector observed some suspicious movement. Upon searching the area, it was found that a contraband-like substance, most likely drugs, was dropped there,” Baramulla SSP Rayees Mohammad Bhat told mediapersons in Baramulla.
