Jaish operated Hexa-Copter laden with 5 kg IED shot down in Akhnoor: ADGP Mukesh Singh
[GREATERKASHMIR] Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Mukesh Singh Friday said that Jammu police have shot-down a 'Hexa-Copter' operated by the Jaish e Mohammad outfit near Akhnoor area of the border laden with 5 kilograms of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) he said "was to be planted somewhere for explosion in Jammu by the receiver who did not turn-up".
Following information about a drone flying over the border belt of Kanachak along the International Border (IB) on Thursday night, a quick reaction team (QRT) of the police swung into action and shot it down using anti-drone strategy, a police official said.
The drone was flying about seven to eight kilometres inside the border, the officials said, adding that it had six big wings and was a tetra-copter.

Following inputs, he said, the Jammu Police team reached there, and they laid an ambush. Around 1 AM last night, one drone was sighted by the police which dropped the payload of 5 KG IED, the ADGP said.
"It was a ready to use IED which only required to be connected with a wire to get it active to trigger a kaboom," he added.
Singh said that preliminary analyses suggest it was a Hexa-Copter which has a flight controller, and a GPS.
He further said that the flight controller’s serial number and the serial number of the drone which was shot down in Kathua a year back had only one digit's difference "which means that the hard boy groups have got many drones of one serial."
He said that the drone was assembled using parts made in China, Taiwan and Hongkong.
The ADGP further said the payload is dropped from the drone through a string and similar string seemingly was used in the Satwari Airport drone attack which confirms that the pay-load was dropped in the airport through the drone.
He said that the detailed analyses of Kathua’s drone drop suggested that drones can carry 10-12 kg of weight.
Its range reduces if the payload capacity is more, he said.
Quoting an example, the ADGP said that AK 47 rifles were dropped within the range of 12-13 km.
In the last year and half, the ADGP said that 16 AK rifles, 3 M4 US made rifles, 34 pistol, 15 grenades, 18 IED (15 small and 3 big IEDs). Besides, two other sorties carried currency while they have recovered Rs 4 lakh cash also.
He further added that 25-30 drone sorties material has been seized in last year and half and many people have been arrested in this connection.
During their questioning, he said, they came to know that Jaish-e-Mohammed
...the “Army of Mohammed”, a Pakistan-based Deobandi jihadi group concentrating on conquering Indian Kashmir that was officially banned by Pakistan in 2002, which intentionally hasn’t crimped their activities even slightly. Yet another wholly owned subsidiary of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI)...and Lashkar-e-Taiba
Army of the Pure, an Ahl-e-Hadith terror organization founded by Hafiz Saeed. LeT masquerades behind the Jamaat-ud-Dawa facade within Pakistain and periodically blows things up and kills people in India. Despite the fact that it is
banned, always an interesting concept in Pakistain, the organization remains an blatant tool and perhaps an arm of the ISI...
were behind the drone droppings in Jammu to cause explosions or to send arms to Jaish and Lashkar operatives in Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it
Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
It can be seen that this is the second time in as many days that security forces have intercepted drone activity in Jammu and Kashmir after another unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was spotted in Satwari area on Wednesday.
Earlier, a drone was seen hovering around the Jammu Air Force Station on July 16, which was immediately picked up by radars of the anti-drone defence system deployed by the National Security Guard (NSG).
The NSG had installed the system in the Valley after Pak faceless myrmidons carried out a drone attack on the Jammu air base late in June.
