The security forces of Kashmir successfully averted a major tragedy on Thursday by destroying 17 grenades that were deployed by terrorists from across the border. According to the on-ground visuals and data accessed by Republic TV, the explosives were placed in the sensitive area of Mendhar Tehsil of Kashmir’s Poonch district along the Line of Control (LoC). Terrorists from the Ghaznavi Force had reportedly planted the grenades targeting religious places including temples of the Union Territory.
Upon court orders, the case has been now handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). A police team along with the Indian Army launched a search operation and fortunately unearthed these ammunitions. Several arrests have also been made in the case and the terrorists are handed over to the NIA. This comes merely a month after security forces had recovered two pistols and 11 grenades during a search operation in the border district of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir.
Jaish-e-Mohammad operated ‘Ghaznavi force’
Last year, the Indian intelligence had discovered that banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) had created a new group of highly-trained terrorists called ‘Ghaznavi Force’ to carry out Pulwama-style terror attacks in India.
