Posted on June 27, 2013 by Dailyexcelsior SRINAGAR : Army has busted a militant hideout and recovered a huge cache of arms and ammunition, including anti-tank and anti-personal mines, from Kupwara district of north Kashmir. â€œContinued area domination operations by troops of the frontline division in Kupwara resulted in unearthing a huge cache of arms and ammunition yesterday,â€ a defence spokesman said today. He said the recoveries included two anti tank mines, 55 anti personal mines, ten hand grenades, eight flame thrower tubes, eight RPG rounds, two 105mm artillery shells, 100 detonators, 1500 rounds of AK ammunition and 35 kgs of RDX explosive packed in 75 plastic containers. â€œThe cache was carefully concealed behind boulders and in the thick jungles on the upper reaches of the Shamsabari towards the Line of Control,â€ he said. â€œThis is a major recovery and thwarts the nefarious designs of the terrorists to disturb the fragile peace in the Kashmir Valley,â€ he said. A senior army officer, Brigadier Ram Niwas said â€œthe cache could have been used by the terrorists for violent activities in the region particularly with the Amarnath Yatra beginning tomorrow.â€ (AGENCIES) DAILY EXCELSIOR @mods @Ray May you please change the title to- Artilery Shells,RPGs,Anti tank Mines,Flamethrowers seized in J&K.
