Early Times Report

Kishtwar, July 4: Kishtwar police on Thursday announced it had solved the mystery behind the drone seized by it from the high security District Jail Kishtwar.
The police said a 16-year-old youth had brought the drone from Malaysia via Amazon for personal use, but some media houses misquoted him, as a result of which confusion was created in the sensitive district.
While divulging the details, SSP Kishtwar, Shakti Kumar Pathak said that on 02-07-2019, during the evening hours a camera fitted drone was found in District Jail Kishtwar. Sensing the breach to security, the district police instantly swung into action. The SSP said that the drone was seized and while police was on job for technical analysis of the flying object, the news spread across the length and breadth in social/electronic media with their own cooked up stories. On the legal front, an FIR was immediately lodged at P/S Kishtwar to this effect under relevant sections of law. The SSP said that the whole of the district police administration was meticulously analyzing the things involved to crack the mystery behind the flying object and at the same time, some media men were busy in giving a twist to the news, causing fear psychosis among the public. He said that during investigation, one Shoaib Ahmed Malik, son of Riaz Ahmed Malik, of Umar Mohalla, Kishtwar, and his friends namely Moin Ahmed Malik, of Sangrambhatta and Govind Sharma approached police and claimed ownership of the flying object.
Shoaib told the police that he had bought the camera fitted drone through online purchase from Amazon for video graphing/shooting upcoming marriage of his sister. On 02.07.2019, Shoaib along with his friends gave a trial of the flying object with wi-fi connectivity from Chowgan Ground Kishtwar. The drone went beyond their control because of technical or handling error and randomly flied towards the north of the town. When the news gained media hype, they approached police.
To a question regarding possibility of jail break attempts and security threat, SSP Kishtwar refrained from giving a direct answer. To another question regarding future threat of drone like object openly being used and brought through online unchecked SSP Kishtwar said all such persons have been asked to get these drones registered with police.
