Drone with explosives shot down in Kanachak area


On Friday, a hexacopter drone was shot down in the Kanachak area of Jammu and Kashmir. The drone was shot down approximately 8 kilometres inside the International Border (IB). The drone also contained a 5 kg improvised explosive device (IED), according to the police.

"A drone was shot down in Kanachak area and explosive material was recovered. Details are awaited," the Jammu and Kashmir Police said.

On Wednesday, a suspected drone was spotted in the Satwari area, while earlier on July 16, a drone that was seen operating around the Jammu Air Base was picked up by the radars of the anti-drone system deployed by the National Security Guard (NSG) there.

The NSG had deployed an anti-drone system in the city after a drone attack took place on the Jammu air base last month.
