Jammu: Security forces have busted a major militant hideout in Jammu and Kashmir, recovering a huge quantity of automatic rifles, ammunitions, grenades and powerful explosives, an army official said Saturday.

After receiving intelligence inputs about the terrorist hideout in the forests of Marmat area of Doda district, around 170 km from here, a joint team of 10 Rashtriya Rifles and police conducted the raid Friday evening, army spokesperson Col. R.K. Palta told reporters.
"The troops had to walk for over 10 hours through rough terrain to reach the remote militant site. There is no telephone connectivity in the area. The army and police columns are still on their way back to the base camp," the spokesperson added.

The arms and ammunitions recovered include many automatic and country-made rifles, their magazines, a pistol, launchers, grenades, 60mm mortar bombs and 5 kg RDX.
Besides these, binoculars, grenade fuses, radio set antenna, propaganda books, medicines and Rs.1,819 in Indian currency were also recovered from the site, Col. Palta said.
