Drones spotted near Jammu Air Force station
JAMMU: Drone activity was detected near the Jammu Air Force station once again on Wednesday morning, less than a week after a flying machine was spotted along the Line of Control (LoC) in Pallanw area of Akhnoor.
“Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV/suspected drones) were spotted at two different locations in Satwari sector in the early hours of Wednesday. Around 4am, a drone was found hovering over the civil airport and a similar object was seen flying over Peer Baba area in Satwari, near Jammu Air Force base sometime later,” said a source. Later, these UAVs disappeared and authorities concerned were informed, following which a massive search was launched to trace these flying objects.
On June 27, two bombs were drone-dropped at the Jammu Air Force station, leaving two IAF personnel injured. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is investigating the case. Following the attack, the district authorities had banned commercial/private use of drones in Samba, Ramban, Kathua, Rajouri, Poonch, Baramulla, Srinagar, Jammu and Ganderbal districts of J&K.
On July 15, a drone was again spotted near the Jammu Air Force station, while another was spotted along the LoC in Pallanw. The two in dents were reported within 24 hours and on July 14, BSF had forced a suspected drone to return to the Pakistan side after it was seen hovering over Jammu’s Arnia area.
Expressing concern over the proliferation of drones, J&K DGP Dilbag Singh had earlier said that drones have added a new dimension to security threats from terror groups. In an interview in Srinagar on Tuesday, Singh said an investigation into the attack on the Jammu IAF station last month showed involvement of non-state actors, supported by state actors such as the ordnance factory of Pakistan.
after previous in dent, if we still cant track them today then we are clowns
Feku will do what he does best, cry like a little girl and compn in some UN office.
He lacks the round (oo) hanging down below.
Why is there a delay in installing the DRDO made anti drone sy ems which can shoot down these unwanted drones??
Why the PM Modi and BJP govt. just keep watching the enemy Drones like Sitting Ducks and doing nothing after they had already attacked Air force station on 27 June 21 in Jammu injuring IAF personnel.
Come UP Elections and the anti India activities across the borders start ! Why ? Why are our Bravehearts not sh ting down the Drones or for that matter any flying objects trying to spy or attack our defence facilities from across the Borders ? Simply knock down the flying machines !
Looks like ion preparation
This is India under PM Modi .
Population bill and drones in the news everyday means the UP ion is coming. Modi will burn our country to ashes because of his hunger for power.
I thought they have a strong surveillance sy em to track drones. DRDO had said they have those special radars with them. Really bad defence. Buck up guys.
Why not reciprocate, and send few drones to check the Pakistanis.
These are all preparation for the next phase of ions. Po iticians have crippled this country and they have used different dog and pony shows to gather emotional support only to their own benefits.
Don't worry, now we have Son of the soil, Dankapati Harishchandran Shrimaanji Modhi ruling India. Since there were no wons before 2014, Dankapatiji is arming India. If we want strong armed forces, we should at the least make Dankapatiji ruler for another 15-20 years.
omg... Indian Army is scared of toy drones. Kids fly these drones everywhere in USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Germany and other countries.. Couple of years ago pigeon was caught by Indian Army. They said it was from Pakistan... Hahaha
India will sit tight after lodging a compnt with the UN, crying in front of camera and give pompous advice to citizens doing nothing to destroy these drones
Let us hope that the security agencies get the tech to not only capture and neutralize the drone, but also capture the person operating the drone.
Just shoot them down with guns. It can be used as target practice for the soldiers
Need teach another lesson to Pakistan for sending the drones. Either by surgical strike or by sending troops.
worlds third largest arms importer..
these must be part of Pakistani te rort activities.
OTH radars did not work ?
Why weren't they shot down?
