In a major breakthrough, the Army busted a militant hideout on Sunday and seized a war-like cache of arms and explosives, including 60 kg of RDX and 104 explosive devices, in Kishtwar district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Troops of the Rastriya Rifles, on specific information, launched a massive search operation in the Keshwan forest belt of Kishtwar, Ministry of Defence spokesperson M. Mehta said.

“This is the biggest recovery made by the troops this year in the Jammu region and perhaps the largest one in the past few years in Kishtwar,” he said.
