The Khemkaran police and the 101st Battalion of the BSF, in a joint operation in the Harbhajan Singh border outpost (BOP) area on Tuesday, seized a hexacopter and 6.68-kg heroin from fields in Kalash Havelian village.

According to them, the police had received information of the movement of the drone in the Khamkaran area which had come from Pakistan. Following this, the joint operation was launched with the BSF.
