Modi chairs high-level meeting after Jammu blast; drone policy expected

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.



New Delhi, June 30

India is looking forward to formulating a drone policy in a bid to avoid terror attacks such as the one on Sunday in Jammu and Kashmir. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had chaired a high-level meeting on Tuesday in light of the twin blasts that occurred at the Jammu Air Force Station. Initial probes suggest the blasts were a drone attack from Pakistan.


PM Modi held discussions regarding the Jammu air base blast with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. Reportedly, security and policy-related discussions were the main agenda of the meeting. The leaders discussed the process of formulating a drone policy for India and India will have one very soon, top sources told CNN-News18.


The Defence Minister had met with the top brass of the Indian Air Force (IAF) before the meeting with Modi. Both meetings were regarding drones and had incidentally been planned days before the attack in Jammu, officials told .At the meeting, the government decided that the IAF will be the nodal agency to deal with drone technology.


The twin blasts occurred around 1:40 am on Sunday, leaving two IAF personnel injured. One blast ripped off the roof of a single-story at the technical area of the airport. The second blast occurred on the ground. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken over the probe. Initial reports pinned the blame on terror groups from across the border in Pakistan.


Drones were reportedly sighted at three separate places in Jammu for the fourth consecutive day on Wednesday. Drones sightings were reported from the Miran Sahib, Kaluchak, and Kunjwani areas of Jammu early Wednesday morning, sources told India Today, adding that they were seen hovering over defense installations. At least seven drones have been spotted in and around military camps in Jammu in recent days. ( Source Yahoo.com )
