Srinagar, Feb 28:  Locals on Thursday handed over to police a pistol they found near the wreckage of an Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter jet in central Kashmir’s Budgam district.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Police sources told news agency that the pistol was found by a minor boy. After his family spotted it, they immediately informed the police and handed over the pistol to them.

A police officer said the pistol apparently was carried by one of the six IAF officers.

Six IAF officers and a civilian Kifayat Ahmad Ganie were killed when an M-17 IAF chopper crashed in an open field in Garand Kalan village in Budgam on Wednesday morning. (GNS)
