Rajouri: Security forces destroyed two IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district in a controlled explosion, PTI reported citing an official on Monday.
It was a joint operation by police, army, and CRPF from Dassal village, 4 km from Rajouri town, on Sunday evening, which found the IEDs. The IEDs were located after intelligence input.
They were destroyed in a controlled explosion by the bomb disposal squad in the Chingus forest area, 30 km away from the town.
Security forces are on high alert across Jammu and Kashmir, where they have intensified checking and strengthened border and highway grids in view of the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra and upcoming Republic Day.
The officer said that an alert had been issued for security forces after two blasts on Saturday in the Narwal locality of Jammu that left nine persons injured and the recovery of another IED in Kheora village of Rajouri last week.
