Posing a new threat to Indian security, the new technically advanced terror attack on the Indian Air Force base in Jammu and Kashmir heralds a new and significant challenge to the nation. The air force station in Jammu and Kashmir is a base for India’s military drones. Equipment is safe in the station. 

It is for the first time, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have been used to drop improvised explosive device (IEDs) on the Indian Air Force base. Following the event, the Bomb Data Centre of the National Security Guard (NSG) and the National Investigation Agency (NIA) are investigating the terror strike. Jammu and Kashmir Police have filed an FIR on terrorism charges. 

In this drone terror attack in Jammu, The first blast happened at 1:37 am which ripped off the concrete roof of a single-story building at the technical area of the airport manned by the IAF. The second blast happened five minutes after at 1:42 on the ground. Two Air Force officers were injured in the blast. Many military stations are put on high alert. 

A security officer at the base station said that he heard two separate whirring sounds within a time span of six minutes. No drones were found near the area which clearly implies that after dropping the payload of more than 2 kg each, the drones went back. 

It is still ambiguous whether the drones came from across the Indo-Pak border or were launched from a building or an elevated point close to the IAF base in Jammu. 

The drone attack is being seen with utmost seriousness because drone attacks will be difficult to prevent. The security officer said that if bigger payloads are dropped, it could cause extensive damage and even loss of lives. The lack of robust technology to detect and disable drones poses a greater challenge. 

The incident will cause a paradigm shift in the security strategies of India. India should develop robust technology to fight new -tech advanced threats.
