Busting terrorists' hideout, Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday recovered 1,470 rounds of AK rifles in North Kashmir's Baramulla district.

A senior police officer said that on a tip-off, a joint team of Baramulla Police along with the Army's 52 RR launched a search operation. During searches, 1470 rounds of AK rifles were recovered by the Joint team at the Bandi Bala area of Baramulla.

A case has been registered in this regard and an investigation has been takeup.

The recovery of over 1400 rounds of AK rifles has raised many eyebrows because such a huge quantity of ammunition was kept in an isolated place in Baramulla. It is believed that these rounds were meant for terrorists who have been using AK rifles in different parts of Kashmir Valley.
