The BSF on Tuesday said it had recovered 565 grams of heroin dropped by a Pakistani drone from a field near the International Border in Punjab's Amritsar district.

Border Security Force troops intercepted the drone on the intervening night of November 20 and 21. They also heard the sound of something dropping on the ground at Mode village, an official said.

During a search, BSF troops recovered a packet wrapped in yellow tape containing 565 grams of heroin, the official said.

The Pakistani drone returned after dropping the packet, according to the BSF.
