On Sunday, alert forces shot down drone from across Pakistan after it entered India in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district.

The security forces after shooting down the drone found it laced with ‘sticky bombs’—considered as a new threat by agencies from across the border.

Sticky bombs unlike remote control sticky bombs, have a timer of about 5-10 minutes, which gives the attacker enough time to flee.

There have been instances where terrorists have used sticky bombs on the vehicles in Jammu and Kashmir. The latest instance, as per The Indian Express was in J&K’s Kathua district, where a sticky bomb was attached to the fuel tank of the bus carrying Mata Vaishnov Devi pilgrims.
