Landmine explodes on LoC in Poonch

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, July 29: A landmine exploded near the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district in the early hours today but there was no report of any damage, officials said.
The landmine exploded around 4 am amid incessant rains near the Khokhri post in Terwan village of the Degwar area, the officials said.
They said Army troops immediately conducted a search of the area but nothing was found.
The forward areas along the LoC are dotted with landmines as part of an anti-infiltration obstacle system to prevent terrorists from intruding into the Indian side from across the border. The mines sometimes go off after getting washed away by rains or forest fires.
