Amidst speculations being rife about the use of drones by Pakistani agencies to airdrop sophisticated arms meant to carry out subversive activities in the state, border residents on Tuesday night spotted two more drone incursions in Hajara Singh Wala and Tendi Wala villages, both situated along the Hussainiwala border in Ferozepur.

However, the BSF authorities are tightlipped about the development and no official confirmation has arrived as of now. On Monday night, BSF troopers had spotted five drones sorties, out of which one drone had intruded the Indian airspace upto a kilometer in Ferozepur.

While border residents are alarmed, the security forces are on alert and combing operations were on to sanitise the entire area where drones were spotted. The BSF has reportedly lodged a protest about the incident with Pakistani counterparts during a flag meeting which took place on Tuesday.
