During the late night time hours a plane carrying spent uranium from an Indian nuclear facility, to a secure storage depot went missing along the Pakistani border. The plane has not been heard from since, and there are no indications as to why the plane is missing.
There are two possible scenarios being considered by Indian officials: one, is that the plane has landed for unknown reasons and the crew is unable to communicate, or two, the plane has gone down due to a mechanical failure or by hostile intentions.
The primary concern is that the uranium could be used by terrorist factions, in the area, to fashion a dirty bomb. There is a high probability that the aircraft is on the Pakistani side of the border. Indian officials are reluctant to send forces into the area due to political tensions with Pakistan, and fears that such action would be seen as hostile by Pakistan or terrorist groups. India has called on the US for assistance in this matter. The US can not take direct action either, due to unstable relations with Pakistan. This situation does however, pose a threat to US troops, in the region and, if a dirty bomb is smuggled into America it could be used on US soil.
In light of this threat, the US has opted to employ private military contractors to investigate the situation and recover the uranium and any surviving crew members. NATO and the UN are keeping their distance from the situation, but at the same time have made no objections to the manner in which the United States has decided to deal with the matter. Indian military forces are on standby and have been made available to the contractors if needed. To the eyes of the world, India is calling the shots on this one and has full jurisdiction over the operation. The US will remain a silent partner in the operation and will not take any direct action unless things get out of control, and there is a threat of eminent danger.
The situation on the ground is unknown and the theater of operation is hostile territory. There are several Mujahideen training camps in the area, of the plane's last contact. This is a threat that the contractors need to take very seriously, and use extreme caution during the operation. The PMCs will have their work cut out for them.
