IAF radar spots `flying object`, turns out to be its own
Ahmedabad: A radar at the Indian Air Force
(IAF) base in Nalia taluka of Kutch district spotted a `flying
object` near Indo-Pakistan border but later found it to be one
of its own, defence officials said Monday.
The incident took place around 18:00 hours yesterday when
the radars at the Nalia Air Force base, which is near the
Indo-Pak border, picked up signals from a flying object in the
Indian air space, they said.
"Following this, personnel on the air base were alerted
in anticipation of some hostile activity. However, within a
few minutes the flying object was identified as one of our
own," the officials added.
Nalia is on high alert following inputs of possible
terror strike from air.
Intelligence inputs ahead of the Republic Day, on terror
groups working to target Indian interests, had warned about
Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) acquiring over 50
para-gliding equipments that could be used to carry out
air-borne attacks in the country.
