SRINAGAR: Security forces on Sunday busted a militant hideout and recovered a cache of arms and ammunition in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said.

The cache was recovered after the arrest of the conspirator of the attack on a popular restaurant owner's son in the city here, a police official said.

“A hideout was busted in forest area of Anantnag by police and security forces after the arrest of conspirator of Krishna Dhaba attack,” the official said.
