The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday accused Pakistan of using drones to drop weapons across the Line of Control at night, NDTV reported. The police said they have seized a cache of arms and ammunition, including two AK assault rifles and a pistol, from a village in Akhnoor region of Jammu.
“The weapons were meant to [be] handed over to terrorists in Kashmir Valley,” Senior Superintendent of Police, Jammu, Shridhar Patil told ANI. “Initial probe suggests Jaish-e-Mohammed is behind this.”
The consignment, which also includes three AK magazines and 90 rounds, was recovered from Zad Sohal village. The police received specific inputs that the weapons were air-dropped by a Pakistani drone and conducted searches. Militant outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad has been involved in major terror attacks such as the 2019 Pulwama strike in India.
