Along the Indo-Pak border, Border Security Force (BSF) personnel shot down a Pakistani drone that had intruded on the Amritsar sector during the intervening night of February 2 to February 3 at 2:30 AM.

According to BSF, the drone entered the jurisdiction of the Border Observation Post (BOP) Rear Kakkar in the Amritsar sector of Punjab. The drone and a package of illegal goods were found on Friday morning between the border barrier and the zero line, said the BSF authorities.

In the early hours of Thursday, the BSF suspected drone activity at the Indo-Pak border close to Mumbeke village in the Fazilka district of Punjab. By firing at the drone, the soldiers managed to stop it and find 2.622 kilograms of heroin.



There's still an ongoing investigation.

The Border Security Force (BSF) personnel stationed at the border on February 1, 2023, during the nighttime, heard a buzzing sound and noticed a flashing red light of a suspected drone entering Indian Territory in the vicinity of Mumbeke, a village that borders Pakistan and is in the Fazilka district.

The soldiers fired in an attempt to intercept the drone as per the drill. The entire area was sealed off, and the police and other sister agencies that were involved were notified.

Additionally, during the investigation of the region, BSF personnel found three packages of contraband in a wheat field close to Mumbeke that were thought to contain heroin and weighed 2.622 kilos. They also discovered a blinker device.

In addition, BSF personnel found three further packets of contraband—weighing 2.612 kilos and bundled together with a blinker device—from a wheat field while searching the area close to the bordering Village of Kabul Shah.

The recovered suspected narcotics substance consists of six packets totaling 5.234 Kgs and two blinker devices. Each blinker device had two batteries attached to it.
