New Delhi: In a new revelation, Major General Ajay Chandpuria of GOC Dagger Division of the Indian Army said that weapons and devices left by the US Army in Afghanistan were recovered from the Line of Control in Kashmir.
“Weapons/devices recovered from terrorists killed at LoC weren’t commonly seen. These were in Afghanistan when US troops left. Our analysis – not only terrorists but weapons can also come to Kashmir,” said Major General Chadpuria, General Officer Commanding (GOC) 19 Infantry Division stationed in Baramulla of North Kashmir.
