    All weapons seized from TTP should be handed over to Kashmiri Mujahideen
    and also start Khalistan movement as well. If India is arming proxies in Pak
    then why is Pak not doing the same?

    Anti-tank mine buried underneath an AP mine has been used in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Normal AP mine maims not kills, put it on top of AT mine and have large explosion to kill multiple people.
    Tactic used by insurgents, not militaries.

    On topic: Remnant of previous war.

    The trigger could still work but the danger is to civilians who may set it off as a curiosity.

    My theory is that isn’t some sinister plot and more some careless sapper who may have dropped the mind during transport over the river and then plausibility through currents or other natural forces made its way here.

    I thought the pressure plate needed quite a bit of load to set it off, the member above actually made a sensible remark about booby traps with AP mine and AT mine combo.
    To me, it seemed like an old mine that came through the bank erosion, but I am just speculating.
