Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh said on Sunday that a major terror attack was averted in Jammu with the discovery of another improvised explosive device (IED). Singh’s revelation came even as security agencies continued their probe into twin explosions inside an Indian Air Force (IAF) station at the Jammu airport which took place after midnight.

“Jammu Police recovered another IED weighing around five-six kilograms. It was recovered from a suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative which he was tasked with crowding at a crowded place. This recovery has foiled another major terror attack. The suspect is being interrogated and more suspects are likely to be arrested in connection with the foiled attempt,” Singh said to the media.
