The Jammu and Kashmir Police chief Dilbag Singh has said said that Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba is suspected to be behind the drone terror attack on Air Force base on Sunday.
The same launchpad may also be behind the drones spotted near the military facility on Monday, he told media.
“Initial probe reveals that Lashkar might be behind the attack on the Jammu air base,” he said.
This suspicion came following an arrest of a man on Sunday with an explosive device weighing 4 kg.
The arrested named Nadeem Ul Haq is a 22-year-old suspect from Banihal. He was arrested just a few hours after the two blasts at Air Force base in hours of Sunday in Jammu. It was the first ever attack done with use of drone.
“His interrogation leads us to believe the Lashkar link to the case. 4 kg IED (Improvised Explosive Device) was recovered which he was supposed to plant in a civilian area,” the police chief said.
The Police and the Investigating agencies had also earlier said that the terrorists based in Pakistan were behind the attack at the Air Force Base.
