Srinagar: Armed forces in Kashmir have expressed concern after ‘Sticky Bombs’, which can be attached to vehicles and detonated remotely, have been seized during raids in recent months in Jammu and Kashmir. Senior officials told News Gathering Agency Reuters that ‘it will certainly impact the present security scenario as volume and frequency of vehicular movements of police and security forces are high in Kashmir Valley’.

These magnetic bombs, agencies say, have wreaked havoc in Afghanistan.

According to a report by Reuters, the arrival of the sticky bombs in Kashmir – including 15 seized in a February raid – raises concerns that an unnerving tactic attributed to the Taliban Afghanistan could be spreading to the region.
