The Indian Air Force is probing whether the two low-intensity explosions at its base in Jammu were part of a terror attack.
Two explosions, within a gap of five minutes, rocked the high-security technical area of Jammu airport early on Sunday. A bomb disposal squad, a forensic team and police teams were rushed to the blast site. The first blast, which took place around 1.45 am, ripped off the roof of a building at the technical area of the airport manned by the Air Force. The second one was on the ground.
There were no reports of any casualties. One of the blasts caused minor damage to the roof of a building while the other exploded in an open area.
“There is no injury to any personnel or any damage to any equipment. Investigation is on and further details are awaited,” a defence spokesperson said.
