The attack on the Indian AIR FORCE station at Jammu airport with explosive-laden drones on June 27, 2021, is a serious concern for Jammu & Kashmir. The attack was carried out using an improvised explosives device (IED) in the base camp.


Keeping this situation in mind, the Srinagar administration has banned the use of unmanned vehicles, which could be a threat to the territory and claim peoples' lives. The state has ordered individuals who are possessing these drone cameras and any other unmanned aerial vehicle to deposit them in the nearest police station. If anyone found not complying with orders has to face legal charges with stringent actions, the administration cautioned.

Only the Jammu & Kashmir administration has been exempted from this rule as they need to possess such vehicles for the survey, surveillance, and mapping of agricultural activities, disaster management but before using it they need to inform the nearest police station, and this way the state can save its citizen from any catastrophe happening through drones which seems to have become apparent these days.
