Jammu and Kashmir: Suspected drone activity in Samba’s Bari Brahmana
Jammu/UNI: A suspected drone activity was spotted on Saturday following which the traffic was briefly suspended in the Bari Brahmana area of Samba district in Jammu and Kashmir.
Police said that the Army authorities informed them about suspicious activity of drones near the Industrial area at Bari Brahmana.
“Police and Army teams reached the spot but nothing has been found so far. We are carrying searches and also monitoring the situation,” police added.
Meanwhile traffic was restored after a brief suspension.
Earlier on Thursday night, some villagers spotted a blinking light and it was probably a drone near Bhalwal in Pargwal village close to the Indo-Pak International Border of Akhnoor.
Police teams immediately swung into action and launched a search operation on the information of the villagers but nothing was found.
Last week, Jammu Police shot down one hexacopter fitted with a 5 kg Improvised Explosive Device near Kanhachak-Akhnoor area.
On Thursday night, one drone with blinking light was also spotted thrice at different locations in bordering Samba district.
Drone activity has increased manifold in a month especially after attacks on Air Force Station, Jammu.
