Separatist militants snatched weapons from TV tower guards in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district, police said on Monday. The police said the militants attacked the guards posted at a Low Power Transmitter station of public service broadcaster Doordarshan in Dalvash village late Sunday night. They took away five service rifles.

The attack comes after a jawan died when Pakistan violated the ceasefire twice on Sunday by firing on forward posts along the Line of Control in Rajouri district.

A senior army officer said there have been over 25 ceasefire violations along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir after surgical strikes by army troops in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to dismantle terror launching pads.
