Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh took to Twitter to slam Pakistan for using drones to deliver weapons and communication devices into India and urged HM Amit Shah to take quick action against Pakistan’s new nefarious tactics to disrupt peace in India.
He said that the drone incidents were a new and serious dimension on Pakistan’s “sinister designs” following the scrapping of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
“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 @AmitShahji to ensure that this drone problem is handled at the earliest,” said Punjab CM in his Tweet.

Captain Amarinder Singh’s Tweet came two days after Punjab police had exposed a recent terror module of the revived Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF), backed by a Pakistan and Germany based terror group that was devising a series of terror strikes in Punjab and other adjoining states.
The Punjab Police had in a Facebook post revealed that they had seized a huge cache of arms including five AK-47 rifles (along with 16 magazines and 472 rounds of ammunition), four China-made 0.30 bore pistols (along with 8 magazines and 72 rounds of ammunition), nine hand grenades, five Thuraya satellite phones along with their ancillary equipment, two mobile phones, two wireless sets, and Rs 10 lakh fake Indian currency notes.
Initial investigations had revealed the use of drones to deliver weapons and communication hardware from Pakistan to Taran Taran.
Following the development, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has decided to transfer the case to NIA for further investigation.
“Module was conspiring to unleash series of terror strikes in Punjab and/or adjoining states. Police seized huge cache of arms including 5 AK-47 rifles, pistols, satellite phones and hand grenades. Further investigations in the case handed over to NIA,” said a statement released by the Punjab CMO.
Punjab CM had requested the central government to direct the Indian Air Force (IAF) and Border Security Force (BSF) to launch necessary counter-measures to check for any possible threats.
The IAF and BSF have already launched counter-measures to check any further threat from drones to the border state of Punjab.
DGP Dinkar Gupta said the weapons may have been delivered recently across the Indo-Pak border from Pakistan using drones launched by the Pak ISI with local Pakistani terrorists and pro-Khalistani terrorist outfits working under its command.
The 4 members of the terrorist module, namely, Balwant Singh alias Baba and Nihang, Akashdeep Singh alias Akash Randhawa, Harbhajan Singh, and Balbir Singh were arrested from the outskirts of village Chohla Sahib in Tarn Taran on Sunday.
Confirming the reports here on Sunday, DGP Dinkar Gupta said the module was backed by Pakistan-based chief of KZF, Ranjeet Singh alias Neeta, and his Germany-based associate Gurmeet Singh alias Bagga and Doctor, who had re-organized their terrorist group to revive terrorism in Punjab.
Rattled by the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir, Pakistan has been trying several techniques to disrupt peace in the Valley and adjoining states. Besides trying to push terrorist through the border area, Pakistan has been spreading fake and malicious news to create an atmosphere of panic in the Valley, but sadly for the terror state, each of its attempts is being successfully thwarted by India.
