Jammu, July 20 (IANS) Security forces, including the army and Jammu and Kashmir Police, Friday unearthed a huge arms cache in a remote mountainous area of Reasi district in the Jammu region.
“On receipt of a specific input, during a routine area domination patrol, about the existence of a cache of arms and ammunition on the higher reaches of Lapridhar, about 150 km north of Jammu city, a joint operation was launched in conjunction with a police party,” defence apokesman Lt. Col. R.K. Palta told IANS.
He said that on a thorough search of the area, where the existence of the cache had been indicated, security forces unearthed the arms which were concealed in a rock cave, within a dense forest.
