Security forces find three-cylinder IED planted near JK’s Handwara

Security forces on Friday averted a major improvised explosive device (IED) attack on the Srinagar-Kupwara Highway near Handwara in Jammu and Kashmir. “A high-powered IED connected with three 10-kilogram LPG Cylinders was spotted by an alert Road Opening Party near Langait,” the Indian Army stated.

According to the officials, the IED was planted on the National Highway that connects Kupwara with Srinagar. “Almost 1000 civil vehicles and 200 defence vehicles crossed the spot where IED was planted. The IED was detected by the column of an Air Defence Unit present in the area,” the Indian Army said.

Earlier in the day, Security forces detonated three suspicious gas cylinders found in Ganapora village of Kralgund in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district, according to an official release. The suspicious cylinders were detonated in a controlled manner by the Army’s road opening party (ROP) in collaboration with the 30 Rashtriya Rifles (30RR) and Handwara Police.

The Jammu and Kashmir Police stated in an official release, “In a swift response to a potential security threat, the ROP of 25 ADP in collaboration with the 30 Rashtriya Rifles (30RR) and Handwara Police, successfully detonated three suspicious small gas cylinders found along the roadside in Ganapora, area of Kralgund Handwara in Kupwara district.” “At approximately 8:00 am, the ROP of 25 ADP discovered three suspicious small gas cylinders concealed under some bushes, approximately 100 meters from the Ganapora crossing, leading towards Udipura,” it added.”

Recognising the potential danger, the security forces acted promptly to assess and mitigate the threat. At around 1030 hours, the joint team of 30RR and Handwara Police safely detonated the suspicious cylinders,” it stated further.
