A major disaster was averted on Sunday night after security forces recovered an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) near Tujan village in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. The IED was planted beneath a bridge.
“An IED planted by terrorists under a bridge near Tujan village recovered. This is a road between Tujan and Dalwan,” said IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar.
The timely action by alert security forces has helped in postponing a major mishap as the road connects Pulwama district with Budgam. It is often used by security forces for movement. A similar incident was reported last month after an IED was recovered from the Gangoo area of Pulwama. In another news, 4G mobile Internet services were on Sunday restored in two Jammu and Kashmir districts – Udhampur in the Jammu region and Ganderbal in the Kashmir Valley, on a “trial basis”.
Union Territory`s Principal Secretary, Home, Shaleen Kabra, said: “The high-speed mobile data services in the districts of Udhampur and Ganderbal shall be restored forthwith, on a trial basis, while in the rest of the districts, Internet speed shall continue to be restricted to 2G only.”
