J-K: Arms, ammunition and explosives recovered by BSF in Kupwara

Srinagar: In a significant operation, the Border Security Force (BSF) in Kupwara, Jammu and Kashmir, successfully intercepted a major transhipment of arms, ammunition, and explosives. This operation is a crucial step in thwarting potential terrorist activities in the region, officials said on Thursday.
Acting on specific intelligence provided by the BSF and corroborated by the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Kupwara, a joint checkpoint was established at the Reddi Chowkibal market. The checkpoint was manned by personnel from the BSF, the Army, and the Jammu and Kashmir Police (JKP). During the search operation, an overground worker (OGW) named Shabir Ahmad, son of (Kupwara), was apprehended.
One pistol, one pistol magazine, 10 rounds, four hand grenades, and two Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were recovered from Shabir Ahmad's possession, the BSF said.
Reliable sources have indicated that the terrorists were planning to use these weapons and explosives to carry out attacks during the forthcoming Shri Amarnath Ji Yatra in Srinagar and its surrounding areas. This operation has significantly disrupted the plans of Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir (PoJK) based terrorist groups, who aim to destabilize the peace and tranquillity of the Kashmir Valley, the BSF said.
The successful execution of this operation highlights the coordinated efforts and vigilance of the BSF, Army, and JKP in ensuring the security and safety of the region.
