Punjab: A Pakistani drone was intercepted by Border Security Force (BSF) troops in violation of Indian airspace on the morning of Sunday, November 26. The incident was reported following a search operation in Amritsar district's Chak Allah Baksh village. During the operation, BSF troops recovered a cache of illegal items.
The interception resulted in the recovery of a substantial haul, which included a pistol, two magazines, 20 live rounds, and 5.240 kilograms of heroin. The discovery of these illegal possessions in the village area has heightened concerns about cross-border activity and narcotics smuggling into Indian territory by Pakistan.
