An official said the Indian Army foiled a narcotics smuggling attempt and recovered 10 packets of narcotics near the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday.

A White Knight Corps statement said, “Indian Army foiled yet another attempt of narco-terror smuggling by recovering 10 packets of narcotics near Line of Control in Poonch Sector.”

Officials said on March 12 that the Indian Army recovered two sophisticated pistols, two kilograms of narcotics, and a two kilogram Improvised Explosive Device (IED) during a search operation near the Line of Control in the Jhangar and Naushera sectors.

The operation, according to the Army, averted a major incident that could have been started by perpetrators using weapons and IEDs funded by narco-terrorists.

“On March 11, the Indian Army conducted operations near the Line of Control at Jhangar and Naushera sectors based on intelligence inputs.” “The operations resulted in the recovery of pistols, narcotics, and a 2 kg IED,” officials said.
