Two mortar shells defused in Kathua

BSF personnel averted a major tragedy when they defused two mortar shells in a border hamlet in Kathua district.

The incident has happened barely two days after a BJP councillor, Rakesh Pandita, was shot dead by militants in Pulwama district. Pandita was the municipal chairman of Tral. He was visiting a friend, Mushtaq Ahmad, when three militants fired at them. Ahmad's daughter was also injured in the incident. Pandita's killing had prompted the police functionaries to advise the protected persons in Kashmir to avoid moving out without their personal security guards.

Meanwhile, BSF personnel on Thursday averted a tragedy by defusing two mortar shells found in a border hamlet in Kathua district.

A resident of Karol Biddu village along the International Border found the shells and immediately informed the police and the BSF, officials said.

According to the personnel of the Border Security Force, a major tragedy is averted. — PTI
