In the late hours of November 19, a hand grenade was discovered in the main market of Azadganj in the Baramulla area of J&K. After the explosive was recovered, the security forces cordoned off the area and the bomb squad was called in.

According to sources, traffic was halted in the Azadganj area, which is one of the busiest markets in Baramulla. According to the most recent updates, the bomb disposal squad destroyed the grenade at a firing range in Baramulla’s Ushkura, and traffic on the Kupwara-Baramulla national highway was quickly restored. Furthermore, The Resistant Front (TRF), a banned terror organization, claimed responsibility for the grenade, which it intended to use against the Indian Army.

Meanwhile, the cordon and search operation by the Indian Army’s 46RR, 53BN CRPF, and the Baramulla police continues in many areas of the town. TRF, an offshoot of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), is supported by Pakistan in its anti-India activities. Notably, the latest attempt to disrupt J&K’s peace and stability comes just hours after the armed forces foiled a Pakistani infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Rajouri district’s Nowshera sector. The infiltration was attempted on the nights of November 17 and 18, around 11 p.m., but the alert forces were able to neutralise the terrorist and recover war-like supplies.
