An official spokesperson announced on Monday that the Boundary Security Force (BSF) had recovered a drone that had flown into India from Pakistan along the international border in Punjab.
According to the officials, the unmanned aerial vehicle was detected and shot upon by troops at approximately 7:40 p.m. on Sunday in an area falling inside the territorial boundaries of Rajatal village in Amritsar.
According to a BSF official, the quadcopter was “recovered” from a field near the border fence, and a search is currently underway to determine whether it dropped any cargo in the vicinity.
Officials stated that it was unclear whether the China-made drone was shot down or if it crashed due to a battery drain.
Last week in Punjab, at least three such Pakistani drones were shot down by the border force.
