Jammu, Sep 1 (IANS) Explosive material was recovered on Tuesday on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir by Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.

“A road-opening party of CRPF found an explosive TNT slab on the national highway in Kheri area of Udhampur district today (Tuesday),” a senior police officer told IANS here.

The police official said the TNT slab may have been left behind after it was used for highway clearance.

The Jammu-Srinagar highway is prone to landslides, which block the route, triggered due to rains and snow, mainly in winter.
