Jammu attack: Were drones bought from China for pizza delivery used by Pakistan?

New Delhi, June 29

Indian security agencies had intelligence inputs that Pakistan had brought a large number of drones from China for delivery of pizzas and medicines in the country. It is now a matter of investigation if these drones were used in Sunday’s attack on the Jammu Air Force Station.

The initial probe into the drone attack has pointed to the involvement of Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, said Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police Dilbagh Singh.

Two explosions, within a gap of five minutes, rocked the high-security Air Force Station in Jammu in the early hours of Sunday. The first blast ripped a hole in the roof of a single-storey building, while the second one was on the ground in an open area.

Investigations revealed that under the cover of darkness, low-flying drones were used to drop payloads carrying explosives inside the defence establishment, in a first of its kind attack.

 

The investigation into the attack on the Jammu air force station has been handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

 

The strikes mark a paradigm shift in terrorists using technology from a stand-off distance that negates the need for a suicide attack but can cause heavy damage to the intended target.
