PM reviews the security situation in Jammu

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday chaired a high-level meet to review the security situation in Jammu. The drone attack on Jammu IAF station was also discussed, sources said.

The meeting was attended by Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and NSA Ajit Doval. 

They also discussed "futuristic challenges" in the defence sector, sources said. The BJP top brass also discussed various other aspects, including equipping security forces with modern equipment and involving more youth, start-ups and the strategic community in the field.


The meeting came against the backdrop of the first-of-its-kind terror attack using drone at an Indian Air Force station in Jammu.

The government has handed over the probe into the attack to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Meanwhile, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) was on Tuesday given the charge of investigation into the drone attack on the Jammu air force station.

The decision to hand over the probe into the first-of-its-kind terror attack at the Indian Air Force station was taken by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The investigation into the attack on the Jammu air force station has been handed over to the NIA, a Home Ministry spokesperson said.

In what was the first instance of Pakistan-based terrorists deploying drones to strike vital installations, two bombs were dropped at the IAF station in Jammu in the early hours of Sunday, causing minor injuries to two airmen.
