Officials say India's Border Security Force discovered the hideout of wanted rebel commander Abu Tallah in the northern district of Baramulla. He belongs to the Pakistan-based militant group known as the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
The officials say troops recovered 10 explosive devices each weighing two kilograms that they believe were going to be detonated by remote control. They also recovered 14 detonators, two hand grenades and other arms and ammunition.
Lashkar-e-Taiba, or "The Army of the Pure," is one of the most hard-line groups active in Kashmir. It was created in Pakistan but banned there a year ago after India accused it of helping plan an attack on its parliament.
The group's founder, Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, was released from Pakistani custody last month.
