The drone was seen near the international border at around 5 am, in the area of BSF’s Rosa Post in Gurdaspur.

A senior BSF officer said that most of these drones coming from Pakistan are used to deliver narcotics, weapons, explosives, and ammunition.

In mid-August, the same incident took place. The BSF personnel did the same and pushed back the Pakistani drone after they spotted it near the Indo-Pak border in Punjab’s Attari area.

The drone infiltration cases from Pakistan have increased in recent times and every time the Indian army pushes them back.
