New Delhi: A drone was shot down about 6 km inside the Indian border in Kanachak area of Jammu and Kashmir. The downed drone has been identified as a hexacopter. According to the Jammu and Kashmir Police, about 5 kg of explosives has been recovered from the hexacopter. Earlier today, J&K Police quoted news agency ANI as saying that a drone was shot down in Kanachak area and explosive material was recovered. There has been a huge increase in the number of drone sightings in the Indian territory after the Jammu attack.
