On Tuesday morning, a drone was sighted over Ratnuchak, Kaluchak and Kunjwani areas. The previous day, on Monday, the Army claimed to have spotted drones flying over Kaluchak and Ratnuchak military stations and opened fire at them, making them fly away.

Army PRO Lt Colonel Devender Anand had said Monday that “a major threat was averted by the alertness and proactive approach of troops”. He added that security forces were on high alert.
