Easy availability of drones has increased the complexity of security challenges and the Indian military is developing capabilities to effectively deal with the threats, be it from state-sponsored elements or by states themselves, Army Chief Gen M M Naravane said on Thursday.
In an address at a think-tank, Gen Naravane said the security establishment is well aware of the challenges and certain measures have already been put in place to deal with them.
“We are developing capabilities to deal with the threats whether they are state-sponsored or by states themselves.
We are developing capabilities to deal with drone threats both in the kinetic and non-kinetic realm,” he said.
Gen Naravane was asked about the recent drone attack on Jammu Force Station.
On the situation along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, the Army chief said there has been no infiltration along the LoC after a ceasefire understanding was reached between Indian and Pakistani militaries in February.
