JAMMU: Security forces Monday busted a guerrilla hideout in Jammu and Kashmir's Ramban district and seized some arms and ammunition.

"Army's Delta Force based in Dharmund in Ramban district and personnel of the Jammu and Kashmir Police busted a militant hideout and recovered a cache of arms and war-like stores," a defence ministry spokesman said here.

Acting on a tip off about the presence of a militant hideout in the dense forests of Abbalkot, a joint operation was launched by Rashtriya Rifles and the special operations group of police, the official said.

The arms and ammunition recovered include one AK 47 rifle with three magazines, one 303 rifle, one 12 bore rifle, two China-made hand grenades, one binocular, one radio set and 20 batteries of 1.5 volts used for exploding remote controlled explosive devices.
