The Army has said it averted an attack by recovering explosives at Tanghdar near the Line of Control, the de facto India-Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir, on Monday evening. The recovery was made during an operation launched after a tipoff about the explosives.

An army spokesman credited the high state of alertness of the forces for the recovery. He added security forces increased alertness and monitored the area through a comprehensive surveillance grid before a detailed search was launched by the Army’s bomb disposal team that led to the recovery of the explosives “supposedly being transhipped to hinterland”.
