Man abandons car after seeing Naka party in Anantnag: Police

SRINAGAR — Police recovered arms and ammunition after the driver of a vehicle fled from the spot after seeing a Naka party in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district last night, officials said on Tuesday.

“As per sources, a team of Anantnag Police was on night domination near Mehmodabad Dooru. A vehicle coming from the opposite direction stopped on seeing the police party. This raised suspicion and the police team fired some rounds in the air. However, the driver of the vehicle fled away from the spot, taking advantage of the darkness,” a police spokesperson said in a statement to GNS.

Upon checking the vehicle which the unknown person abandoned, the spokesperson said, a red colour bag was found. “From the bag, one AK-56, short barrel, two AK magazines, two pistols, three pistol magazines, six hand grenade, 44 rounds of AK-47, 58 rounds of 9mm ammo and a sling was recovered,” he said.

Subsequently, he said, a case under relevant sections of law has been registered in Police Station Dooru Anantnag. “Nakas have been laid and alert has been raised to look out for the person who escaped,” he added.
