it could be part of the bully boy plot to revive militancy in Doda, Ramban, Rajouri and Poonch districts after Kishtwar.

two South Kashmire snuffies from Gool in Ramban district along with arms and ammunition while two others had managed to escape. The snuffies were part of the module which was planning to revive militancy in Ramban on the pattern of Kishtwar.

no arrests were made from the spot.

Police was examining the weaponry to ascertain as to when it had been kept in the hideout by the bully boys. During past some time, no infiltration has been reported from the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri sector.

However,

it appeared that the snuffies had kept the consignment in the hideout to pick it up at a later date for subversive activities. Possibility of the snuffies planning to take consignment of arms and ammunition to Kashmire via Mughal road has also not been ruled out.
