A cocktail of explosive material, including RDX and nitrate, was used in the two IED that were dropped from drones at the Indian Air Force (IAF) station in Jammu, sources in the security establishment said on Monday.

They added that RDX is not available in India and seems to have been sourced from Pakistan. This evidence can help establish Pakistan’s role in the attack, sources said. Sharing details of the IEDs, they said one IED was bigger in size and was probably meant to cause infrastructural damage. The other was intended to hit personnel with more splinters and ball-bearings.

A GPS drone, suspected to be a ‘Made in China’ product, was used in the attack in Jammu IAF station, sources added. Last week, DGP J&K Dilbag Singh said the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba outfit was suspected to have been behind the drone attack. In the wake of the drone threat, security agencies in Jammu have now installed an anti-drone system at the Air Force station.
