Army on Thursday said it has found over 100 assorted weapons of Chinese make near the Line of Control (LoC) in Keran sector of Kashmir.

“More than 100 weapons, including 98 pistols, have been seized near the Line of Control in Keran Sector of Kupwara district,” an army spokesman said.

He said the recoveries included 10 AK rifles and two assault rifles of other makes.

“The weapons are of Chinese make and the packing material like newspapers are also Chinese,” the spokesman said.

He said a possible tragedy has been averted due to high vigil of the army along the LoC as “the adversary is trying to push in maximum warlike stores before winters“.

Further details of the seizure are awaited.
