SRINAGAR: On Thursday, the army destroyed around half a dozen explosive landmines on the Line of Control which were originally their own landmines but had drifted, posing a risk to the lives of army personnel.
Official sources stated that six anti-personnel landmines were detected by army troops who were patrolling the area and were part of their own minefield but had drifted near the troops.
They added that a special team of the Indian Army’s bomb disposal squad destroyed the six mines through a controlled mechanism.
The shells were destroyed in the forward area of the Balakote sector on the Line of Control. (KNO)
