The situation along the LoC is under control and largely peaceful, the Army said on Friday, asserting that it will not allow Pakistan to disturb peace in Kashmir. In a joint briefing of security forces in Srinagar, Lt Gen Sarabjit Singh Dhillon, Commander of the 15 Corps, said the threat of improvised explosive devices in the Valley is "more pronounced", but it is being tackled effectively by security forces by conducting regular searches.During the searches, a mine with Pakistan Ordnance Factory markings was seized. The forces have also found a huge cache of arms along the Amarnath Yatra route which included a US M-24 sniper rifle and a mine with markings of the Pakistan Ordnance Factory, the Army officer said.
