Srinagar, June 6

Security forces foiled a bid to smuggle weapons into Kashmir by arresting two militant associates in Kulgam. Their arrest led to the seizure of a huge cache of arms and ammunition, the police said.

The arrests were made at the Lower Munda crossing in Qazigund – the gateway to the Valley – in the south Kashmir district. The accused’s vehicle was intercepted for checking which led to the discovery of two AK 56 rifles, 10 pistols, a few grenades and some ammunition. A case has been registered against Zahid and Mehraj-ud-din of Pulwama and a probe is on, an official said. — PTI
