    RIL Jamnagar refinery under foreign radar? - Hindustan Times

    The Indian Air Force and the Central Industrial Security Force have stepped up security at Reliance Industries' oil refinery at Jamnagar following the sighting of an “illuminated object” in the skies over the plan

    It is suspected the object, which was spotted hovering over the

    refinery twice — on the evening of January 24 and again early morning on January 27 - could be an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) from across the border in Pakistan.

    "While it is difficult to say anything immediately as investigations are still on, the ministries of home affairs and defence have put the concerned security agencies and authorities on high alert," a senior government official told HT seeking anonymity.

    Jamnagar refinery, the largest in the world, is located close to Pakistan border.

    Indian intelligence agencies had last year identified it has a potential target for an attack by Lashkar-e-Toiba operatives.

    RIL pointed out as local forces are ill-equipped to deal with high-tech air-borne assaults, the government should "investigate the incident on top priority... and thwart any possible misadventure in the future".

    Reliance has been rightly asking for some protection for its refinery for a long time but the govt has not done anything on it.

    I doubt Pakis would have sent a UAV. Well I don't think thy have that much capability. It must re reliance guys who have done something and presented it as a UAV and force the govt to come up with better security for the refinery.

    Doesn't Jamnagar have an airbase? Why were the jets not scrambled to intercept the flying object?

    Imho its quite possible that the IAF was testing out something, probably releasing a few aerostats (balloons) or its own UAVs.

    Radars mounted on Hot Air Balloons IMO should prove to be effective against UAVs. It would be a very cheap solution.

    Small UAV can go unnoticed at low altitude, then can climb to an altitude for recon..
