Amritsar, June 12

A drone was sighted near the Indo-Pak border in Ajnala in the wee hours on Saturday. Alert BSF jawans fired at the drone following which it flew back towards Pakistan.

A search operation was carried out near Sundargarh border outpost, but there was no trace of the drone.

A BSF official said jawans heard the sound of drone at around 1.30 am. Taking prompt action, BSF jawans opened fire in the direction from where the sound was coming, however, it flew to the Pakistan side.

A BSF official said a massive search operation was launched at Sundargarh village to find if the drone had dropped some consignment of arms or narcotic substance.

It’s pertinent to mention that Pakistan-based anti-national elements had been regularly using drones to sneak in arms or drugs in the Indian territory. It has become a big headache for the BSF.

The Punjab Police had busted a module which got arms smuggled from Pakistan with the help of drones. Several drones were also recovered by the police.
