An alert has been sounded in the area after the blast.

Local officials recovered parts of the grenade from the site. While the investigation is underway, police have not divulged further information regarding the incident.

The grenade explosion did not in any injury.

Five years ago, the Indian Air Force’s base in Pathankot was attacked by six highly armed terrorists, who had entered India from Pakistan in the night of 30-31 December 2015 through the Kathua-Gurdaspur border in Punjab.

On 1 January 2016, the terrorists carjacked Punjab top cop Salwinder Singh’s to get to the vicinity of the airbase. The attacks started on 2 January, but the terrorists were detected by security forces with the help of thermal imaging as attack copters pinned them down with rockets.

The gunbattle that went on for three days saw the terrorists being neutralised but seven security men were killed in the fight.

On 6 October this year, a drone was spotted near the Jaitpur post in the Bamiyal sector of Pathankot district. Border Security Force (BSF) personnel opened fire at the drone, shooting four to five rounds before the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) disappeared.

In June this year, two had rocked the high-security Air Force Station in Jammu, in which two personnel had sustained minor injuries.

“A drone with payload in both the blasts at Jammu airfield is suspected to have dropped the explosive material,” DGP Dilbagh Singh had said, adding that the drone was being operated from a site near the scene of the attack.
