Jammu: Pakistan dropped weapons and some cash in Indian currency using a drone in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district, Director General of Police Dilbag Singh on Saturday said, announcing the arrest of three LeT terrorists who had picked up the consignment near the Line of Control.

The IGP informed this was the third successful operation in the twin districts of Rajouri and Poonch since September 11.
Earlier, a huge consignment of arms and ammunition was recovered from two people in Balakote sector of Poonch, three days later 11 kg of heroin worth Rs 11 crore, meant to fund terrorism activities, was seized in Rajouri district. In response to questions, he said Pakistan is doing its best to revive terrorism in the twin districts of Poonch and Rajouri, which falls in Jammu division and were cleared of militancy over a decade back.
