Police in Kashmir found a huge cache of weapons buried in a mountain cave on Tuesday after a firefight where 4 rebels were killed:

The weapons include 14 assault rifles, a Russian-made rocket launcher, several rocket propelled missiles, 12 grenade launchers, six pistols, 85 grenades and 5,000 rounds of ammunition, said senior Indian army officer Mukesh Sabharwal. The cache found in the northern Dewar area also included explosive materials such as detonators, RDX sticks, battery-operated improvised explosive devices and remote control devices. “The explosives would have been enough to (make) more than 50 car bombs,” Sabharwal said.

The army also seized night vision devices, binoculars and radio sets. “The arms and explosives were enough to equip several squads of militant groups,” the officer said. “This is one of the biggest recoveries made by the army in recent times.” The weapons found on Monday were “skilfully buried in natural caves in the mountains,” Sabharwal said.
