Huge cache of arms recovered in Kupwara forest

The hideout was unearthed during a search and cordon operation which has been going in Afroda forests in the district since the past one week, a defence spokesman said.

Ten AK rifles, 160 MM mortars, one rocket projectile gun, three .303 rifles, 100 grenades and 1000 rounds of ammunition were recovered from the hideout. Eleven militants have been killed in gunbattles with security forces in the area in the last one week.
