Jammu: Days after two explosives-laden drones crashed into the India Air Force Station in Jammu, a drone was once again spotted near the same defence installation on Wednesday. Forces were able to thwart the alleged terror bid with the help of the anti-drone equipment which detected the UAV and eliminated it.
The incident came a day after a drone was spotted near Jammu and Kashmir’s Arnia Sector on the intervening night of July 13-14. The drone returned after the Border Security Force (BSF) fired five to six rounds.
On June 29, drone activities were thwarted by the army troops at Ratnachuk-Kaluchak military area in Jammu. On June 27, there were two bomb blasts at the Jammu airforce station which security agencies suspected were carried out using drones.
Defence sources said the armed forces have already equipped military installations and other sensitive locations with anti-drone facilities which were recently acquired.
