Fighter Jet Drops Bombs in Rajasthan, Loud Explosion Heard


Jaipur:  Explosions were heard in radius of about 10 kilometer after an Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter jet dropped five bombs at Gugdi in Barmer district of Rajasthan on Tuesday. Initial reports suggest that the bombs accidently slipped out of the jet which was on a sortie over the area. No casualties have been reported so far.

With intelligence inputs warning of a possible terror strike, unprecedented security measures were put in place across the country for Republic Day celebrations that passed off peacefully on Tuesday.

However, a few incidents including an encounter in South Kashmir where an unidentified militant was killed, and a bomb scare sparked by an unclaimed bag at a Pathankot railway station set off alarm.
