Pakistan, continuing with its attempt to disturb India since the scrapping of Article 370, sent across a drone last night. It was noticed in Hussainiwala along the international border of India in Ferozepur of Punjab. According to the Border Security Force (BSF), the drone entered the Indian territory and penetrated about 1 km and then returned to Pakistan. BSF informed Ferozepur Police about the drone sighting.

Pakistan has been using drones to supply arms and drugs in the border areas. In recent times, Pakistan has done this many times. Pakistani drones and weapons were captured in Amritsar and Tarn Taran in the last days of September.

In Amritsar, DSP Counter Intelligence Balbir Singh said on 22 September that 4 terrorists were arrested. During interrogation, the terrorists said that 2 Pakistani drones crashed in Amritsar district, parts of the drone were recovered.

On 3 October, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had said about Pakistani drone activity along the border that he has asked the Indian Air Force and the Border Security Force (BSF) to raise alerts on the border in view of the drone intrusion. He had said in September, “Recent incidents of Pakistan-origin drones dropping consignments of arms & ammunition is a new and serious dimension on Pakistan’s sinister designs in aftermath of the abrogation of Article 370. Request @AmitShah ji to ensure that this drone problem is handled at the earliest.”

The government has taken seriously the incident of Pakistan despatching arms to Punjab using Chinese drones. The Centre instructed the Army and the BSF in September to guard the entire India-Pakistan border and LoC. A red alert was issued that was renewed today. The security forces have been instructed to keep a close watch on any air intrusion of the type on the border.
