A bomb disposal squad of the Indian Army has disposed of a live mortar shell found near a village in Nowshera sector in Rajouri district here, an official said on Monday. "A live mortar shell was found near a village in Nowshera sector. We coordinated with the Army as soon as we received the information. The Indian Army sent a bomb disposal squad, which disposed of the shell," Superintendent of Police (SP) Girdhari Lal Sharma said.
