Security forces have busted an alleged militants’ hideout late Sunday night in Venkari forests of north Kashmir’s Baramullah district, around 60km from Sringarar.

The hideout was underground and big enough to accommodate around four people, police officials said.

The security forces recovered one AK-47 rifle with four magazines, one disposable rocket launcher, one pistol and magazine, two rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), ammunition, a marked map of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), a khaki police uniform, rucksacks and letterheads of an alleged militant organisation.
