Punjab, India: Border Security Forces (BSF) of India spotted a Pakistani drone across the city of Gurdaspur in Punjab on Sunday, January 8, 2023. In order to prevent the drone from entering into the border any further, the security personnel, after noticing the drone, fired 74 rounds toward it. 

The security forces fired multiple rounds after spotting the Pakistani drones at around late night on Sunday. The Border Security forces alleged that the Pakistan forces have been sending drones into Indian territory with the aim of terrorizing the Indian state. They want to monitor the situation of the security personnel so that they can fulfil their harsh motives. It has been alleged that Pakistani forces are using the cover of the dark night and thick fog to send drones so that they can fulfil their intentions without being noticed. 

Furthermore, it has also been reported that the drone was carrying some packet which was recovered by the Punjab Police along with BSF personnel.

The security personnel added that Pakistani forces are always used such tactics to send drones from across the borders, and notably, they are also sending such packets. The intention behind using such tactics is to either snuggle drugs or weapons from across the border of Punjab. 

Moreover, the security forces of the Punjab Police and BSF have started the process of the investigation to check the motive of Pakistani forces behind sending these drones. 

On the other hand, the reports stated that this is not the first incident where the BSF forces have spotted or shot down drones across the Gurdaspur border. Recently in a similar instance, a drone intruded into the Indian territory and was spotted at the height of over 250 meters in the territory of BSF’s Chandu Wadala border outpost in the Gurdaspur sector.

In the incident, the BSF personnel fired illuminating bombs and then fired as many as 40 rounds making the Pakistani drone retreat. Recently, the BSF, and the Punjab Police border security teams have also launched a search operation across the border to the area to check any movement further.
