Mortar shell found in border village in J-K


Security forces detected and defused a 120-mm mortar shell in a border village in Jammu and Kashmirs Poonch district, officials said on Thursday.

Villagers informed the security forces about the shell lying in a field in Kalsian village near the LoC on Wednesday evening.

Officials said it is a Pakistani shell that was fired during cross-border shelling two years ago.

Locals feel there are some more shells buried underground in the area and have requested the security forces to trace them.
