Srinagar: Chinar Corps Commander Lt General K J S Dhillon on Friday said that they have recovered an American sniper rifle from a militant cache along Amarnath Yatra route.
Dhillon was addressing a joint presser with DGP JK Police Dilbagh Singh here.
“An M-24 American sniper rifle with a telescope was also recovered from a terror cache along Shri Amarnath ji route,” Dhillon said.
He said that a Pakistan Army landmine has also been recovered from one of the caches ‘indicating that Pakistan Army is involved in terrorism in Kashmir.’
“This will not be tolerated,” Dhillon said. “We had done in-depth analysis of terrorism in Kashmir. 83% of local people who pick up weapons had record of stone-pelting.I request all mothers,if today your child throws stones at security forces for Rs 500 then he’ll become terrorist tomorrow,” Dhillon said.
He said that situation on the LoC is under control and ‘very much peaceful.’
“Infiltration bids from Pakistan side are being successfully thwarted,” he said.
