A rusted landmine was destroyed near the international border in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba district on Saturday, police officials said.

The landmine, believed to have been planted over two decades ago as part of an anti-infiltration obstacle system, was noticed by a farmer near Poolpur post near Basantar, the officials told Press Trust of India.

They said the army was informed and later the landmine was destroyed in a controlled explosion by the experts of the bomb disposal squad.
