Jammu- State forces have recovered a cache of arms and ammunition, including two pistols, during a search operation in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district, Army officials said on Monday.
A joint team of the Army and police launched a search operation in Chhatru forest area on Sunday, they said.
During the search, they recovered a cache of arms containing two pistols, 40 rounds of ammunition, two wireless sets and other war-like stores, officials said.
Chhatru forest lies along the known movement route of militants between south Kashmir and Kishtwar, they said.
These caches have been created by militants in these remote areas to be used for destabilising the security situation which is heading towards normalcy, they added.
