Police today seized a consignment of explosives from the residence of an army Subedar in Ward No. 1 of the town while a terrorist was killed in an encounter with army and police in Surankote tehsil of Poonch district.

Police sources said a hideout of the terrorists was busted in the residence of Mohd Hafeez, a serving Subedar of army presently posted in JAK Li, in Bela Colony in Ward No. 1 in the town this morning. One Improvised Explosive Device (IED) containing one kg explosive material with glass pellets, five meters cortex wire and 100 grams urea, used in making the explosive devices, were recovered from the army officer's house.

The army officer Mohd Hafeez, who was originally a resident of Nilli, Manjakote, was not present in the house when a raid was carried out by the police.
