In an intelligence-based well-coordinated joint operation of Army and J&K Police, terrorists with explosive material were apprehended from a suspected vehicle near Galuthi, Rajouri. The apprehended terrorists are likely from terror outfit ‘Jammu and Kashmir Ghaznavi Force’.
With the arrest of these terrorists, the security forces have unearthed a nexus involving local terrorists involved in ferrying war-like stores and narcotics. Search operation is still on to recover more arms or explosive material from their hideouts.
These terrorists were likely to carry out a blast in Rajouri district and probably attempting to disrupt the communal harmony prevailing in the region.
It is pertinent to mention that two foreign terrorists of same JK Ghaznavi Force were also killed in an encounter on 13 December 2020 at Dogrian (Poonch) on Old Mughal Road. Their connection to Pak handlers is also being probed.
