Security forces detect IED in Kupwara
Srinagar: Security forces averted a militant attack by detecting an improvised explosive device (IED) in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district on Monday morning, police said.
A joint patrolling party of the forces detected the IED concealed in a sand bag on the Sopore-Kupwara road in the Drugmulla area, a police official said.
The IED was apparently planted by militants to target security personnel who frequently use the road, he said.
A bomb disposal squad was rushed to the spot which destroyed the IED workout causing any damage, the official added. (PTI)
