In a significant development, Border Security Force (BSF) personnel, in collaboration with the Indian Army and the Jammu and Kashmir Police, uncovered a large cache of arms and ammunition in Kupwara district on Wednesday, March 20.

The operation, conducted following specific intelligence inputs, led to the discovery of a substantial amount of weaponry. According to BSF reports, the seizure included a 9 mm Pistol with 01 magazine containing 29 rounds, along with 01 magazine of AK 47 carrying 400 rounds. Additionally, 02 communication sets, 01 improvised explosive device (IED), 01 hand grenade, and other war-like stores were recovered from a hideout in Rangwar, Kupwara.

BSF took to the social media platform ‘X’ to announce the operation’s success, stating, “On specific intelligence of #BSF, a joint search operation was launched by @BSF_Kashmir, #IndianArmy & #JKP at Rangwar, #Kupwara today & recovered, 9 mm Pistol with 01 mag 29 Rds, 01 mag of AK 47/400 Rds, 02 Comn Sets, 01 IED, 01 Hand Grenade & other war-like stores from a hideout.”

The terror revival plots have been busted by the security forces in J&K in the past also. Apparently, the security forces have tightened the noose on the networks of terrorists operative based out of Pakistan, and as a result, the terror incidents have nosedived in the valley. Meantime, the administration is trying to propagate the idea of growth and development in the mindset of youth.

Clearly, this has created chaos among the extremists as the misguided youth remained their biggest asset in the valley throughout the decades. Hence, various terror revival plots are being orchestrated, but fatefully the security forces seem not only vigilant and cooperatively working but also getting ground support from the locals in sweeping separatism and terrorism out of J&K.
