About the explosion

The explosion occurred on Wednesday evening across the LoC in the district.

“A suspicious movement was reported on the LoC in Laam sector of Rajouri district late on Wednesday evening. The blast occurred very close to the zero line during the movement,” officials said.

A search operation has been launched in the area, officials said.
