JAMMU: Police late Saturday recovered arms and ammunition dropped using a drone in the city’s outskirts, confirmed ADGP (Jammu Zone) Mukesh Singh on Sunday.
“The recovery from Phallian Mandal under Satwari police station area included an AK-47 rifle, a night device, three magazines and other ammunition,” ADGP Singh said.
“The ammunition was dropped by a drone as evident from the packing and thread. We are looking for possible receivers in the area. A search is underway,” he added.
The arms were dropped around Saturday midnight. “Some villagers were awakened by the sound of a flying object, suspected to be a drone, and informed cops. Police teams rushed to the spot and seized the package wrapped in yellow polythene, with a handle tied using a nylon thread,” said the ADGP.
In the past one-and-a-half years, security forces have recovered a huge number of arms, ammunition and explosives that were dropped using drones. “These include 16 AK-47 rifles, three M4 US-made rifles, 34 pistols, 15 grenades and 18 IEDs including three big ones,” said an official, adding that even currency notes were dropped in some of these sorties.
Drone sightings along the international border in J&K have increased after the drone attack on Air Force Station Jammu on June 27. Following the strike, the sale, purchase and use of drones for personal purposes was banned by 10 J&K districts.
