Acting on a tip off, a joint team of Rashtriya Rifles troops and police personnel yesterday launched a operation at Samote belt in Rajouri district, a defence spokesman said.

They busted a militant hideout and recovered a cache of arms and ammunition, including one AK 56 Rifle, one AK 56 magazine, 41 bullets of AK 56, 3 bullets of 7.62 mm SLR and 3 chinese hand grenades from Nila in Tehsil Kotranka, District Rajouri, the spokesman said.

Rashtriya Rifles Battalion at Samote has been relentlessly conducting operations in the area to curb militancy and this recovery has given another jolt to the nefarious designs of inimical elements in the area, he said.
