Finding it difficult to smuggle arms to terror groups through infiltration, Pakistan has intensified its activities of supporting terrorists via drones controlled from across the border.

Dreaded terrorist of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), arrested by Jammu and Kashmir Police on late Sunday evening revealed startling disclosures about the nefarious designs of Pakistan to supply arms to terror groups through drones.

According to police, the arrested terrorist was transporting the arms, dropped through drones near International Border (IB), to Kashmir Valley in a truck.

Arms dropped by drones from across the border

According to police, during initial questioning, the arrested terrorist admitted that consignment of arms and ammunition was dropped by Pakistani drones near IB in the Samba sector of Jammu province. A local guide had picked up weapons from a specified spot and handed over the terrorist for transportation to Kashmir Valley.

According to reports, the terrorist has confessed that he had shifted another consignment of arms and explosives to Kashmir, in a truck in May this year.

Earlier two JeM terrorists arrested with arms dropped by drones

On January 19, the Special Group of Jammu and Kashmir Police had arrested two JeM terrorists on Jammu-Srinagar national highway in the Ramban area with arms and ammunition.

During questioning, the duo had revealed that arms they were transporting arms were dropped by Pakistani Rangers with the help of drones in the Samba sector.

As reported earlier in February this year, the BSF had recovered bombs dropped by a drone in the Samba sector. 14 Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) with in-built magnets could be used as "sticky bombs" by sticking them on vehicles and controlling them using a timer and a remotely held device.

Arms dropped by a drone operated from the Pakistani side were also recovered in Akhnoor some months back.
