After drone shot down, Jammu and Kashmir police asks citizens to inspect vehicles before use

A day after security forces shot down a drone carrying explosives, the Jammu and Kashmir Police on Monday asked residents of the Kathua district to inspect vehicles before turning them on.

A North Korea-made drone sent from Pakistan with a payload of seven magnetic or sticky bombs and an equal number of under-barrel launcher grenades was shot down by the Jammu and Kashmir Police in the Talli Hariya Chak area close to the International Border on Sunday.
