Officials said today that security forces found three homemade bombs and some bullets in a forest area in the Ramban district of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday.
“Three IEDs, AK and Pika rounds, a detonator fuse, and five explosives were discovered in a sand bag hidden in the higher reaches of Dharam forest in Sangaldan,” Ramban SSP Mohita Sharma said.
She stated that the IEDs were not planted on any roads and that the bag was hidden in a forest area.
Official sources, on the other hand, revealed that the IEDs were hidden in a tiffin box.
“Around 9 p.m. last night, the bag was discovered beneath a boulder in Basri Nullah (rivulet) in Sangaldan near Tatta Paani (sulphur-rich hot spring) of Gool Tehsil in Ramban district,” they added.
17 rounds of Pika ammunition, 32 rounds of AK-47 ammunition, one detonator, a three-meter cortex wire, a 15-meter electric wire, six packets of explosives, three IEDs in tiffin boxes, three pencil batteries, and a 12-volt battery were found.
The area was cordoned off by the Indian Army, the Special Operations Group, and J&K police.
“When the sand bag was checked on Thursday morning, the IEDs were discovered in tiffin boxes, along with some ammunition and a detonator fuse.” “An investigation has been launched,” they stated.
