With the recovery of a consignment of arms and ammunition that was being transported from Jammu to Srinagar, the security agencies have foiled a major plot of the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror outfit to carry out target killings in the union territory.
Acting on specific information, the Jammu and Kashmir Police and the Army conducted a swift operation and arrested two terror associates and recovered a large quantity of arms and ammunition that the duo was transporting from Jammu to Srinagar in a tipper truck.
Sources say that majority of the arms and ammunition recovered in the operation comprise pistols that point towards the terrorist’s plan to carry out “target killings” in the Union territory.
A senior police officer said that a check post was laid after security forces were alerted by intelligence agencies about the possible transportation of arms and ammunition from Jammu to Srinagar.
He said that the police in Kulgam established a joint checkpoint with Army’s 9 RR at Lower-munda crossing in Qazigund, where a tipper truck coming from Jammu towards Srinagar bearing registration no JK02BB-0949 was intercepted by the joint forces.
