What we Know so Far

The case was handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday. Details revealed so far have suspected a cocktail of explosive material, including RDX, to have been used for the attack. The forensic report on the same is still awaited.

“Mobile and internet activities in the area are being scanned but this is a long process. It will take time,” an officer told News18.

NIA has also suspected that the Pakistani army and ISI could have aided Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) in carrying out the attack. However, as there has been no direct lead, officials have said that it is too early to take names in the case.

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 the early hours of Sunday, causing minor injuries to two airmen.

The explosions took place around 1.40 am within six minutes of each other. The first blast ripped off the roof of a single-storey building at the technical area of the airport manned by the IAF in Satwari on the outskirts of Jammu. The second one was on the ground.

The aerial distance from the Jammu airport to the international border is 14 km.
