Weaponised drones for spreading terrorism calls for serious attention, says India at UN

A day after two explosives-laden drones crashed into the Indian Air Force station at Jammu airport, India told the United Nations General Assembly that against strategic and commercial assets, the possibility of the use of weaponized drones for terrorist activities calls for serious attention by the global community.

An incident that came hours after the first terror attack using quadcopters was witnessed by an IAF station when with the help of drones a fresh attempt was made to attack a military installation which was foiled by alert army sentries at the Ratnuchak-Kaluchak station who then fired at the unmanned aerial vehicle which flew away.

Over the military station which had witnessed a terror attack in the year 2002 where 31 people including 10 children were killed, the first drone was spotted at around 11:45 p.m. followed by another at 2:40 a.m. on Sunday.

According to one of his statements issued by the permanent mission of India to the UN, the special secretary, ministry of home affairs in the government of India, VSK Kaumudi said at the 2nd High-Level Conference of the Head of Counter-Terrorism Agencies of the member states in the General Assembly that against strategic and commercial assets the possibility of the use of weaponized drones to facilitate terrorist purposes calls for serious attention by the member States.

Another strategy for spreading terrorist propaganda through the use of indulging video games was deployed by terrorist groups during the pandemic, he added.
