Two Chinese pistols with two magazines and five rounds, a .303 rifle with one magazine and 10 cartridges and one Under Barrel Grenade Launcher with five grenades were recovered in the joint raid launched by the Army and the police, he said.

The area was cordoned off and meticulously searched leading to the discovery of the cave in the forests of Naidgam, approximately 15 km north of Kishtwar, that was used by terrorists during the peak of militancy, the official said.

The security forces will continue their operations to keep Kishtwar district safe, the spokesman added.
