In a recent development, liquid explosives have made a dramatic return to Jammu and Kashmir's militancy theatre after a hiatus of 17 years. Police successfully recovered these elusive Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) during a raid, aided by information from one of the recently apprehended Over Ground Workers (OGWs).

The discovery occurred following a gunfight earlier this month in Pulwama, where prominent Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists Riyaz Dar and Rayees Dar were neutralized. Riyaz Dar, a high-ranking terrorist with a significant bounty, had been involved in numerous terror activities.

Authorities believe this resurgence ties back to Pakistan-based terror groups, who may be using advanced methods, including aerial drone drops, to smuggle liquid explosives across borders. This presents a growing challenge, as these explosives are notably difficult to detect with conventional means.
