Gurdaspur: The Border Security Force (BSF) has confiscated a cache of Chinese guns and ammunition dropped by a Pakistani drone near the international border in Gurdaspur, Punjab, officials said on Wednesday.
According to a spokesperson, during the nights of January 17 and 18, BSF forces in the Gurdaspur district’s Uncha Takala frontier village region heard what they believed to be a suspected drone coming from Pakistan.
A sound of something being dropped to the ground was heard when the BSF party fired in the direction of the suspected drone.
After that search operation started by the BSF. Following a search of the area, a packet containing four pistols made in China, eight magazines, and 47 bullet rounds was found.
The BSF reported that vigilant personnel once again were able to thwart plots by smugglers to carry weapons via drones.
The BSF, which has the duty to guard the 3,323-km India-Pakistan border, said a detailed search of the area is in progress.
Pakistani drone activities have intensified in recent times. But the vigilant BSF personnel always prevent them from becoming successful.
Last month, a Pakistani drone was shot down by the Border Security Force along the international border in the territorial limits of Rajatal village in Amritsar, Punjab.
