On Donald Trump's visit to India, government will take an initiative to sign this deal. A top government source said, "We are interested in the drone technology used by the US special force to kill the Iranian military officer as it can quietly sneak in and kill its target without getting detected by radars."
It was also added by the sources, if in case the government desires to carry out likely military strike against the known non-state actors who have been indulged in anti-India activities, "Such drones can be utilised by India to strike out its targets."
Some known non-state actors conspiring agaisnt anti-India interest involve, Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist leader Maulana Masood Azhar and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), who have been working in Pakistan against Indian interests for several decades now.
US killed Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani was killed in a secret airstrike in Baghdad, soon after Soleimani landed there on January 3 this year.
To claim the life of Osama Bin Laden in 2009, the United States Navy Special Forces had used a special stealth chopper to land and attack their objective hiding next to the Pakistan Military Academy near Islamabad.
However, sources said India may also move ahead with the Predator drones deal with the United States but they would not be as effective in carrying out selective strikes as they can be shot down by a fighter aircraft.
