Less than a week after a drone was sighted near Punjab’s Ferozepur, another Pakistan-origin drone was spotted in Punjab by people living closed to the border.
A suspected Pakistani drone was spotted flying over two villages along the India-Pakistan border in two border villages Hazara Singh Wala and Bakdi on Monday night.
As per locals, the drone crossed from the Pakistan side and entered the Indian airspace, up to about one kilometre. Some eyewitness said the drone was flying high near the BSF HK Tower and over paddy fields along Sutlej. Later it crossed the border and could not be spotted again.
The BSF has said it is yet to ascertain if the drone dropped anything on the Indian side.
On October 8, a drone was spotted in Ferozepur, following which the BSF took up the matter with Pakistan Rangers in a flag meeting.
The drone was seen four-time on the Pakistan side and once in the Indian near border outpost (BOP) HK Tower area, adjoining Hussainiwala.
The police and BSF had launched a search operation in the areas but were not able to find anything. Indian Army authorities had earlier said any Pakistani drone violating its airspace will be shot down.
