CLAYMORE MINE RECOVERY ON LoC IN SAUJIYAN SECTOR
Jammu: The Line of Control (LoC) has always been facing acts of uncalled for aggression from across LoC in various forms but the vigilant and alert troops of Indian Army deployed in the challenging terrain of Pir Panjal mountains have always been answering these provocative acts with resolute, firm and appropriate response. With no head way being made on any ground whether the IB or LoC. Inimical elements have now started taking assistance from the terrorists in planting IED and mines on the LoC. The incidents of IED in Balnoi Sector on 10 October 2014, was one such incidence. The high reaching yet challenging treacherous terrain of Poonch has been often used by inimical elements to give shape to their evil designs. It has always flaunted the rights and dignity of civilian population by targeting them both during Ceasefire Violation and by planting IED on roads being used by them also. In another such incident a Pakistan origin claymore mine along with a knife, shawl, tracksuit and caps was recovered on LoC in Saujiyan Sector in Poonch on 14 October 2014 by an alert LoC domination patrol. The mine recovery reaffirms the handiwork of inimical terrorists and subversive elements in spreading acrimonious activities on LoC and hinterland in clear violation to code of conduct expected of it. The Indian Army continues to enhance and upgrade its vigil on a daily basis resulting in such recovery of lethal mine which has 800 pellets and has a killing area of 50mtrs and danger area of around 200mtrs. The Indian Army is fully prepared and geared up to handle any such misadventure or nefarious design of terrorists and inimical elements will continue to thwart all such activities.
