Another drone spotted near Army area in Jammu | India News – Times of India


JAMMU: A suspected drone was spotted near an Army area on the outskirts of Jammu city late Friday, hours after J&K Police had shot down an IED-laden hexacopter in Akhnoor.
Around 8.25pm, the flying object with a blinking white light, was seen hovering in Kaluchak area under the jurisdiction of Gangyal police station. “The suspected drone was flying about 150-200m above ground level and was spotted for a minute before it appeared to move towards Ratnuchak village. An alert was sounded and the area was cordoned off,” said a source.
Earlier on Friday, Jammu Police had shot down a drone fitted with 5kg ready-to-use IED in Akhnoor. At a press conference later, Jammu ADGP Mukesh Singh had revealed that the threads found on the hexacopter matched with those on the flying objects used to carry out the twin explosion at Jammu Air Force Station on June 27, which left two IAF personnel injured. He added that in the past one-and-a-half years, J&K Police have so far recovered 16 AK-47 rifles, numerous magazines, 15 grenades and 18 IEDs air-dropped from Pakistan.
