Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a high-level meeting with Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval on Tuesday, sources said.
They said there were discussions on futuristic challenges in the defense sector and equipping the forces with modern equipment and aspects relating to the involvement of more youth, startups and strategic community were also discussed. The meeting comes after two low-intensity explosions were reported in the technical area of Jammu Air Force Station on early Sunday morning.
Two drones were used to drop explosives on the Jammu airbase by the attackers who then navigated their quadcopters out of that area, the sources had said. The Indian Air Force (IAF) said one of the blasts caused minor damage to the roof of a building while the other exploded in an open area.
The attack, carried out possibly using the improvised explosive device (IED), could not cause much damage and caused minor injuries to two personnel on duty. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Monday handed over the probe into the first-of-its-kind terror attack in the country to the National Investigation Agency
