Acting on specific information, Security agencies launched a swift and surgical joint search operation on 04 March in Chairhar village in Kishtwar district of Jammu and Kashmir.
The team recovered a large quantity of war like stores and sustenance stores from a natural cave hideout in Chairhar village.
Security agencies had been getting information of suspicious unidentified movement of the personnel in the general area for the last two months and, therefore, a close watch was being maintained.
The recovered arms likely belong to one of the terrorist tanzeems of the area, active in the past, which could have been hidden for later usage. The area due to its remoteness and rugged terrain makes it an ideal location for establishing a hideout.
The recovery of war like stores was possible only due to the accurate intelligence and launching of well synchronised joint operation by Indian Army, JKP and CRPF.
The recovery of this cache has given a major success to the Security Forces and a massive blow to the terrorists in the area, thereby preventing the arms and ammunition from falling into the hands of inimical elements, aiming at revival of militancy in Kishtwar.
