Pathankot: Indian Air Force Distributes Pamphlets Of A Possible Paraglider Terror Attack

Published on 30 June, 2016 at 11:39 am By

Air force authorities in Pathankot, Punjab, have conducted an awareness drive wherein they have distributed pamphlets to residents nearby the airbase and making them aware of a possible terror attack through use of remote-controlled flying paramotors, drones and gliders.

The pamphlets also carry telephone numbers of officials to whom the residents can contact them if they see such aerial vehicles.

“Pamphlets have been distributed to sensitise people. They have been issued in the general interest of public,” official sources said.

According to an official, the exercise will keep people on alert given that militants are adopting novel ways.

According to locals, officials from Air force have told them about the noise created by a paraglider and its light. They have asked them to remain vigilant.



This comes days after the IAF pasted posters on the boundary wall of the airbase bearing a shoot-on-sight warning for anyone trying to enter without authorisation.

In addition, BSF, Police, and Army have put in security check points at various places near the Pathankot air force base. Following an alert that some “terrorists were still hiding” in villages close to the “vulnerable” Pathankot airbase, Punjab Police carried out a massive door-to-door search in at least 28 hamlets near Pathankot.
