According to the report, during the high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday, measures and strategies to counter “weaponized drones used for terror purposes against strategic and commercial assets” were discussed.

The measures came in days after India witnessed the first-ever drone attack on a military facility near Jammu airport. Two Indian Air Force personnel suffered minor injuries in the explosions that took place a little before 2 am at the high-security airport located around 14 kilometers from the border with Pakistan.

NDTV added that the Modi government has decided that the Indian Air Force will be the nodal agency to deal with such technology and the modalities to create such a policy is in process.

Meanwhile, following Sunday’s attack, the Ministries of Civil Aviation and Home Affairs will review existing regulations pertaining to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).
