It is not the first time that a Pakistani drone had entered the India air space. Last year also, several such incidents were reported. After these incidents, Indian intelligence agencies had also informed the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) that Pakistan “state actors” were behind the weapons drop by drones across Punjab. The Ministry then asked the BSF to adopt the anti-drone mechanism aimed at preventing weapon smuggling across the western border.
Last week, Punjab police apprehended three Pakistani handlers near Indo-Pak border in Tarn Taran district. The police also recovered two drones. One of the drones was recovered near the border in Tarn Taran, while another drone was located in Haryana’s Karnal district. The cops also reportedly recovered two walkie-talkies and Rs six lakh cash. Meanwhile, reports had also surfaced that around 300 terrorists were trying to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir ahead of the Republic Day.
