Drone in Punjab: Pakistan is not deterring from its antics. Border Security Force ‘BSF’ once again foiled Pakistan’s conspiracy to send drugs and weapons through drones. Pakistani drones that entered inside the international border of Punjab were chased away by the soldiers by firing. This information has been given by BSF. BSF said that on Sunday night at 9:40 pm, a drone from Pakistan entered the Indian side at Chautra BOP of 58 Battalion in Gurdaspur. He was seen going back from the area of POP Chakri around 10 pm. BSF jawans fired 56 rounds at the drone and also fired 8 illuminating bombs. After this the drone went towards Pakistan.
Intensive search operation was carried out in the entire area since night
Gurdaspur Sector DIG Prabhakar Joshi took stock of the spot and interacted with the local citizens including the jawans. He said that since night, intensive search operation of the entire area is being carried out in collaboration with Border Security Force and Police. A befitting reply is being given to every nefarious conspiracy done by the ready soldiers from Pakistan side.
The movement of Pakistani drones was also seen in the past. Suspected drone was sighted in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir. People of Sarthikalan village in Samba district, which is adjacent to the India-Pakistan international border, informed the security forces after seeing a drone in the sky. This drone had entered India from across the border. On receiving the information, the security forces swung into action and thwarted the nefarious designs of Pakistan by conducting an intensive search operation.
Drone was seen roaming in Indian territory for 5 minutes
