The Border Safety Power intercepted a fifth Pakistani drone within the final 4 days that intruded into India from alongside the Worldwide Border in Punjab to drop a medicine consignment, officers stated on Monday.
The newest drone was “downed” within the Amritsar sector. The Border Safety Power (BSF) has recovered the big black-coloured drone with a payload of suspected narcotics connected beneath it, they stated.
The amount and high quality of the consignment is being ascertained, the officers added.
That is the fifth reported interception of a “rogue” unmanned aerial car alongside the Punjab border since Could 19.
Just a few extra situations of troops selecting up the buzzing sound of a drone have been reported during the last 4 days however nothing extra might be established, the officers stated.
The BSF troops shot down two drones and intercepted a 3rd alongside the entrance on Friday (Could 19). A BSF spokesperson had stated the third drone fell into Pakistani territory and couldn’t be recovered.
A drone that “violated Indian airspace on Saturday evening (Could 20) was intercepted by firing within the jurisdiction of the Amritsar sector” and the drive recovered 3.Three kilogrammes of suspected narcotics that was slung beneath it.
