During sensitisation operation in Mahore area in view of the coming assembly elections, army troops busted a major hideout in the area and recovered an IED weighing seven kgs to trigger explosions and target political party leaders and security forces, they said.

Besides, other recoveries included eight electronic detonators, one normal detonator and 20 batteries of 1.5 volt, they said.
