Drone spotted near intl border in Samba; search ops underway

SAMBA: As instances of drones entering Indian airspace continue to be reported from the border regions, the Jammu and Kashmir Police on Sunday spotted yet another drone flying near the Samba International Border in Jammu and Kashmir.

According to the latest input, the security troops detected the drone movement last night. Jammu and Kashmir Police officials informed today morning, “Late last night, villagers from Mangu Chak village, Samba informed Police of having spotted a drone in the area. Police forces are carrying out a search operation.”

“Security forces have deployed a drone to conduct a search operation after villagers from Mangu Chak village of Samba informed police about spotting a drone in the area,” the officials said. Earlier on July 4, the villagers in the Rajpura area along the Indo-Pakistan international border in the Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir are said to have spotted a Pakistani drone.

A police official noted on July 4 that according to some villagers, they saw a drone in the Rajpura area during the intervening night of Sunday and Monday. “Subsequently, SOG Samba launched a search operation around 5 am and used drones to scan the area but found nothing,” he said.

Earlier this year in May, security forces shot down a Pakistani drone carrying seven sticky or magnetic bombs and seven UBGLs (Under Barrel Grenade Launchers) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district. The incident took place on Sunday, May 29, 2022, near Rajbagh police station in Kathua district, in the border area of Talli Haria Chak. Seven UGCL grenades and seven magnetic and sticky bombs were discovered in the aftermath of the drone’s crash. (ANI)
