The BSF personnel sighted the drone four times on the Pakistani side, while once it was seen almost a kilometer inside the Indian territory, a BSF official said.
While going back, the light and sound of the drone went off and it vanished within no time. Sources said that the troops have been asked to keep hawk’s eye on such developments.
Earlier in the day, the intelligence agencies submitted a report to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), relating to the drone citing incidents in the country.
In the report, the intelligence agencies have categorically stated that “Pakistan’s state actors” behind the drone weapon drop incidents in Punjab where a large number of AK-47 assault rifles and grenades were dropped in Amritsar by drones, sources said.
As far as the weapon dropping incidents were concerned, as many as eight sorties have been detected so far, sources said while citing the report. The weapons were meant for terrorists who could use them to create trouble in Jammu and Kashmir, sources said.
