Arms and Ammunition Recovered in Jammu

As per police reports, on Wednesday night i.e., 23 February 2022, three boxes of arms and ammunition dropped by a drone were recovered from Treva village in the Arnia sector of R.S. Pura in Jammu. The police had received an input regarding a drone activity and dropping of arms and ammunition by Pakistan-based militant outfits Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and The Resistance Front (TRF) at the behest of Pakistan’s ISI in the Arnia area.

During a search operation, the police’s Special Operations Group (SOG) recovered arms, ammunition and explosives — three detonators, three remote-controlled improvised explosive devices (IEDs), three bottle explosives, one bundle Cordtex wire, two timer IEDs, one pistol, two magazines, six grenades and 70 rounds. The police said, “With the recovery, a major militant plot has been averted”.

In Kashmir, “Acting on inputs, the police and the Army arrested LeT terrorist Yasir Mushtaq and terrorist associate Irfan Bashir, both residents of Allahpora, Budgam. Preliminary investigation revealed that the arrested terrorist had joined the terrorist organization recently and an associate was providing the logistic support.

On the same day, the police and the Army arrested two “hybrid terrorists” — Muzamil Ahmad and Mohammad Yaseen — both residents of Chakloo, Baramulla. “The duo was missing since February 16, 2022. On their disclosure, two Chinese pistols, two magazines and 12 pistol rounds were recovered,” the police said. The two were in close contact with handlers of the LeT across the border.
