Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (Let) terror organization is surmised to have executed the twin drone blasts at the Indian Air Force station in Jammu early on Sunday.
Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh stated the LeT is speculated to be backing the first-of-its kind strike in the country sparked by drones, reported The Hindu citing PTI reports.
Two bombs were dropped at the IAF base, harming two Indian Air Force personnel. The blasts happened at around 1.40 am within six minutes of each other.
The first blast tore through the roof of a single-storey building at the high security technical zone of the airport manned by the IAF in Satwari zone on the boundary of the city. The second one was on the base.
The interrogation of the matter was delivered to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday.
The J-K DGP said the drones were flown in from across the boundary and recouped after the operation.
He added that the matter is being investigated and the reports will be shared with other security agencies. Singh also said all vital installations have been sensitised following the strike.
A general alertness has also been circulated to the public for any unauthorised use of drones in the union territory, infringement of which will invite strict measures, the DGP added.
Following the mishap, police have enlisted an FIR under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Relevant sections of the Explosive Substances Act, and the Indian Penal Code (IPC) have also been added to the FIR lodged at Satwari police station on the application of a junior warrant officer of the IAF.
