Jammu, May 27: Security forces averted a tragedy on Monday by destroying an improvised explosive device (IED) at the Jammu-Poonch highway in Rajouri district on Monday.

A road opening party (ROP) of the Army detected the IED lying near Kallar Chowk that connects Rajouri district with Jammu, police said.

ROPs are foot patrols that move out early every morning to secure roads and highways before allowing the movement of vehicles carrying security forces.

“An alert was sounded and the road was closed till the bomb disposal squad reached the site and defused the IED, thereby averting a tragedy,” a police officer stated.
