“A huge quantity of incriminating materials was recovered from this terror module, including gelatin sticks, detonators, materials for making improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and grenades.

Gun snatching foiled
The police said eight militant accomplices were detained in north Kashmir’s Baramulla who were plotting to snatch service rifles.

“Based on a credible input, a criminal conspiracy was hatched to snatch weapons from on-duty police personnel in Baramulla, Tangmarg and Srinagar areas,” said the police.
