A hexacopter drone and packets containing drugs have been recovered from fields near the India-Pakistan border by the Punjab Police in a joint operation with Border Security Force. Approximately five kilograms of heroin have been seized, according to the authorities.
On Friday, the Punjab director general of police (DGP) tweeted, “@TarnTaranPolice has recovered a Hexacopter drone equipped with modern technology along with packets containing heroin weighing 5 kilograms from fields near the Indo-Pak border in a joint search operation with @BSF_India.”
A BSF spokesperson said that on Monday, BSF troops shot down two Pakistani drones along the India-Pakistan border in the state in order to foil drug smuggling attempts in the Amritsar and Tarn Taran districts. Two hexacopters were carrying approximately 10 kg of heroin, which were recovered by the troops.
At 10.57 pm on Monday, another drone was sighted near the Vadai Cheema border outpost. BSF troops destroyed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) after they opened fire on them. A joint operation by the Punjab Police and the Border Security Force in Ferozepur has resulted in the recovery of five assault rifles and five pistols.
