Day after an attempt to target a military installation with drones was foiled by soldiers, another drone was spotted near Sunjwan military station in Jammu.
A drone was spotted by security forces at Kunjwani, Sunjwan and Kaluchak area around 2.30 am, sources said. The drone, however, couldn’t be traced after some time, they added.
Kunjwani, which is in Jammu city and near the Satwari air force station, is around 6.5 km from Sunjwan and 4.5 km from Kaluchak.
This is the third instance in three days when drones have been spotted hovering over military installations in Jammu.
On Monday, the Indian Army had said troops fired at two drones which were found spotted over Kaluchak military camp.
One Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) was seen flying inside the Army base at 11:45 pm and another at 2:40 am. Alert Army jawans fired at the drones to neutralise them.
“Two quadkopters were spotted on a stretch of the Kaluchak-Purmandal road on the Jammu Pathankot national highway. The suspected objects were flying near the Kalucheck military station,” police told India Today.
Two bombs were dropped at the IAF station in Jammu airport in the early hours of Sunday — the first time Pakistan-based terrorists employed drones to strike vital installations.
