Officials say the Border Security Force (BSF) opened fire on a Pakistani drone on Saturday after detecting its movement along the International Border (IB) in Jammu, prompting the BSF to fire numerous rounds.
Despite the fact that the drone returned to Pakistani territory, a large search effort was initiated to ensure that the payload had not been dropped by the flying item, according to the official.
Deputy Inspector General of BSF, Jammu Frontier, S P Sandhu, claimed that a drone from the Pakistani side was sighted flying towards the Indian side in the Arnia region at 7:25 p.m. with a blinking light.
He claimed that the alert BSF personnel shot approximately eight rounds to bring the drone down immediately after it entered into Indian territory, but that the drone managed to fly back.
In order to ensure that there is no airdropping by the drone, the entire region has been blocked off, and a search operation has been launched, according to Sandhu, who also serves as the BSF’s Public Relations Officer.
Pakistani drone activity was identified three days after the Border Security Force (BSF) discovered an underground cross-border tunnel in the Chak Faquira area of Samba district.
