According to the Jammu and Kashmir Police, the drone, reportedly carrying 5 kilograms of improvised explosive device (IED), was shot down in Kanachak area of the Valley.

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 Pakistani terrorists carried out a drone attack on the Jammu air base late in June.
