Security forces on Friday seized a packet containing arms and ammunition from a nullah near the international border in the Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir.
Suspected to have been dropped by a drone from Pakistan’s side, sources said that security forces found two Chinese pistols along with five magazines and 122 rounds, besides a pithu bag and a pipe in the packet.
Ever since the drone attack at Indian Air Force Station in Jammu in June this year, there has been a spurt in the activity of such unmanned flying machines from Pakistan’s side into Jammu and its adjoining areas. The security forces are reported to have installed anti-drone systems at vital installations at various places as well.
Meanwhile, ahead of the Independence Day celebrations, security forces and police have already been maintaining a heightened alert across the Jammu division.
