On Thursday, three people suspected to be terrorists were detained with six weapons in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua District, informed a senior police officer.
A truck was interrupted at 8:00 AM on the Jammu-Pathankot Highway and during checking six AK-47 rifles were seized, Inspector General of Police (Jammu) Makesh Singh told sources.
The truck was on its way to Kashmir from Punjab’s Bamyal, said Mr. Singh.
A further search operation of the truck is underway, said the IGP. He continued that three detained suspects, who hailed from Kashmir, are being interrogated.
Police sources further reported that weapons were being transported by the terrorists in the truck.
It is also believed that either of these suspected terrorists invaded from across the International Border via Bamyal Border in Pathankot with the aid of over-ground workers to the Kashmir Valley, said source.
