Punjab: BSF seizes another China-made drone near Indo-Pak border in Amritsar

This incident comes after another violation on the India-Pakistan international border. A day earlier, BSF had shot down a Chinese drone in Gurdaspur district. The two back-to-back incidents have raised concerns about the increasing use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for surveillance and possible espionage activities.

“On the night of 10th February 2024, vigilant BSF troops on duty intercepted the movement of a suspected drone on the border in the district of Amritsar. Following the protocol, the BSF Quick Response Team (QRT) swiftly tracked the movement of the drone”, the statement said.

The partially damaged drone was spotted during movement on the border, prompting immediate action by BSF personnel on duty. With precision and speed, they tracked and retrieved the drone from the farming field, averting a potential threat to national security.

This incident comes after another violation on the India-Pakistan international border. A day earlier, BSF had shot down a Chinese drone in Gurdaspur district. The two back-to-back incidents have raised concerns about the increasing use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for surveillance and possible espionage activities.

These developments underline the growing importance of border surveillance and the need for advanced technological solutions to counter such threats. The BSF, for its part, has reiterated its commitment towards securing the country’s borders and said it remains “always alert” in the face of emerging challenges.
