Jammu Drone Strike: Major Terror Attack Averted, Says DGP

Jammu: Jammu & Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh said on Sunday that a major terror attack was averted following the discovery of another improvised explosive device (IED).

“Jammu Police recovered another IED weighing around 5-6 kilograms. It was recovered from a suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative which he was tasked with crowding at a crowded place. This recovery has foiled another major terror attack. The suspect is being interrogated and more suspects are likely to be arrested in connection with the foiled attempt,” the DGP told mediapersons.

The DGP had earlier told PTI that twin explosions inside an Indian Air Force station at Jammu airport was a ‘terror strike’. He added that his force is coordinating with other agencies in probing the suspected drone attack.

Following the attack, which took place around 2 am, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh ordered senior IAF officials to rush to the blast site.
