He said two AK-47 rifles and other ammunition were recovered from the site.
The police said the terrorists were behind yesterday's grenade attack on a police station in Sopore in which four cops were injured.
To avoid any incidents, mobile phone services have been blocked and schools and colleges have been closed in Sopore area, a police officer said.
