A Pakistani drone was shot down with magnetic bombs & grenades in J&K

According to a senior police officer, a Pakistani drone carrying seven magnetic bombs & grenades and explosives and as many Under Barrel Grenade Launchers (UBGL) grenades was shot down in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua area on Sunday shortly after crossing the International Border.

The incident occurred just days before the annual pilgrimage to the Amarnath cave shrine in the Himalayas of south Kashmir, which has been heightened in security. In the morning, a police search party detected the drone’s movement near the border in the Talli Hariya Chak region and fired at it, according to Mukesh Singh, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Jammu.

According to him, the drone was shot down after being damaged by ground fire. Mr Singh claimed the bomb disposal crew that was sent to investigate the drone’s payload discovered seven magnetic bombs and an equal number of grenades compatible with Under Barrel Grenade Launchers.

Because of the constant drone activity from across the border, the ADGP claimed police search parties were sent to the region on a regular basis. The Amarnath yatra, which will last 43 days, will begin on June 30 on two routes: the classic 48-kilometer path through Nunwan in Pahalgam, south Kashmir, and the 14-kilometer route through Ganderbal, central Kashmir.
