Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence has asked the Lashkar-e-Tayiba to use unmanned planes to carry out attacks in Jammu and Kashmir and other parts of India.
Quoting an interrogation report of a terrorist, sources said that the ISI has handed over a 'fleet' of four dozen such planes, capable of carrying 10-15 kg of RDX, to the LeT.
Two such planes were recently found in Rajouri district of Jammu region, the sources said. The planes, which can be operated by a remote control, take a set trajectory and hit a target within a range of 300 metres.
The arrested terrorist said that one such plane was displayed at an LeT congregation in Pakistan.
The plane can be carried in a briefcase, the sources said. They are being assembled in the LeT-dominated area of Muridkee in Pakistan, the sources said.
