Jammu, Aug 17 (KMS): The recovery of 4 sticky bombs, which formed part of an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), in Mendhar area of border district Poonch in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), has sent Indian security agencies in a tizzy.
They are taking it as a serious security concern and are carrying out probe to unearth more links.
On August 13, a joint operation was launched by the Indian Army, police and Border Security Force in Mendhar area of Poonch and a man from Kasblari identified as Mehmood Hussain, son of Mohammad Munshi, resident of Kasblari was arrested with an IED, having four sticky bombs.
Official sources told media, “The recovery of these four sticky bombs has been taken as a big threat by security agencies. Sticky bombs have always proven to be a big challenge for forces.”
They further informed that it was for the first time that sticky bombs, as a part of an IED, were recovered. “They are regarded as risky not because of explosive nature but due to their specific feature as they can stick to desired surfaces,” they maintained.
The officials said that the recovery of sticky bombs clearly exposed threat of IED attacks on forces. “It is being perceived as the security forces remain prime target of attacks,” they pointed out.
