Needless to add, Rukhsana shot into limelight after she killed a Lashkar militant in September, following which the terrorist outfit was looking for a revenge.
After getting a tip off, security forces and bomb disposal squad rushed to upper Shadra-Sharief village in Thanamandi tehsil of Rajouri district last night and recovered the explosive device near Rukhsana’s house, said police.
The device was defused later.
On October 29, militants had hurled two grenades and open fired at Rukhsana’s house in Shadra-Sharief belt in the district.
