Jammu: Only a day after alert safety forces shot down an explosive-laden drone within the Akhnoor sector, two unmanned aerial automobiles have been once more noticed in Kaluchak and Kathua areas of Jammu district.
The event comes only a day after a drone carrying 5 kilograms of improvised explosive gadget (IED) was shot down in Kanachak space of Akhnoor.
The Jammu and Kashmir Police thwarted a serious terror bid early on Friday after a drone carrying explosive materials was introduced down close to the Worldwide Border with the assistance of the anti-drone defence system.
“At about 1 am, the drone made a low flight to launch the payload (IED), when it was shot down,” Jammu Further Director Basic of police (ADGP) Mukesh Singh mentioned at a media briefing yesterday.
The drone was carrying the payload in a semi-assembled state, because of which solely wires needed to be linked to set off a blast.
The UAV was a hexa m-copter with six wings, a GPS gadget and flight controller.
“We had deployed a crew close to Akhnoor based mostly on particular data. Round 1 am, a drone was detected. When it was lowered to drop payload, police crew began firing and shot it down. The payload weighing round 5 kg was IED in an virtually ready situation. It was a Hexacopter with a flight controller and GPS. Curiously, the serial variety of the flight controller is a digit completely different from the drone which was present in Kathua final 12 months. This drone is an assembled one with some elements from China, others from Taiwan,” Singh mentioned.
In the meantime, an encounter is underway at Shokbaba forest in Sumblar space of Bandipora in a joint operation of police and safety forces.
