In the latest development in the Jammu airbase drone attacks, Republic TV on Monday accessed the FIR filed by the security forces based on the preliminary investigation so far. In the FIR, the two coordinated attacks that happened in the wee hours of June 27 have been called a ‘well-planned conspiracy’.

The FIR accessed by Republic TV reads, “At about 1:37 hours, 27 June, a blast occurred inside the premises of the Air Force Station, Satwari campus. Subsequently, six minutes later, another blast was conducted by the unknown drone as a part of a well-planned conspiracy. Due to the blast, injuries have been caused to 2 of the air warriors and also caused damage to the office building.

Twin explosions hit Jammu airbase

On June 27, multiple blasts occurred in the premises of the technical area of the Jammu airbase, which were later confirmed to be drone attacks. Two blasts were heard within a gap of 5 minutes, the first blast is captured in the CCTV at 1.37 am while the second has been captured at 1.43 am. A team of Jammu and Kashmir police along with other security agencies and forensic experts rushed to the incident spot to further investigate the cause of the blast. Two Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel suffered minor injuries in the drone explosions.

A high-level investigation team of the IAF was dispatched to Jammu after the explosions. The possible target of the drones is said to be the aircraft parked in the dispersal area just meters away. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh spoke to Vice Air Chief Air Marshal HS Arora regarding the blasts and Western Air Commander Air Marshal VR Chaudhary and Air Marshal Vikram Singh reached the spot to investigate the matter.

A high-level security review was held by IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar with officers of BCAS, NSG, Airforce, CRPF, BSF, CISF, Director Airport, DIG Central Kashmir Range, and SSP Budgam. Meanwhile, Jammu & Kashmir Police filed an FIR under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act over the Jammu Airport explosion.

The twin blasts come days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a high-level meeting with J&K’s political parties and the Gupkar alliance, the first since the abrogation of Article 370 and the detention of the leaders.
