STATE TIMES NEWS
Jammu: Panic gripped Jammu border today as a small civilian plane flew close to the International Border (IB) in Arnia sector here.
“I think it was airspace violation. However further details are awaited”, a BSF official said, adding it happens sometimes by mistake.
The plane, which was flying at a low height, was spotted and reported by the Border Security Force (BSF), guarding the International Border.
In its report, the BSF said a six-winged, silver coloured flying object was seen from its border post that crossed into the Indian air space around 1:10 PM and returned within no time, official sources said.
They said a report in this regard has been sent to the BSF headquarters in Delhi.
The Indian Air Force was asked by the BSF to ascertain the veracity of the report as the object was witnessed by only one personnel of the force and some civilians who were working nearby.
However, the IAF said its radars had not picked up any such signal.
