The army on Saturday said Pakistani markings were found on grenades seized from four slain militants in Naugam sector of Kashmir on Thursday, confirming the complicity of the neighbouring country in abetting terrorism.
“Pakistan Ordinance Factory markings on hand grenades (ARGES 84) and UBGL grenades seized from the terrorists confirms Pakistan’s complicity in abetting terrorism,” an army spokesman said.
“Pakistani markings are also seen on medicines and eatable items seized by the force,” he said.

The army spokesperson on Saturday said highly inflammable material, including six plastic explosive slabs, six bottles of petroleum jelly, six bottles of inflammable liquid and six lighters were also seized.
“Similar type of inflammable material was used at Poonch on September 11 and in the Uri attack on September 18. This shows the sinister design of Pakistan to aid terrorists is causing maximum destruction,” he added.
A large cache of arms, food and medicines -- with markings indicating they were from Pakistan -- were also recovered from three militants killed in an encounter with security forces in northern Kashmir’s Handwara area on Thursday.
The army had found three AK-47 rifles, grenade launchers, a large quantity of ammunition, GPS-enabled radio sets, maps and metric sheets -- provisions indicating that the militants were prepared for another assault.
