Punjab police recovers another Pakistani drone near Indo-Pak border in Amritsar

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh 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 and urged HM Amit Shah to take quick action against Pakistan.

The Punjab police Friday, recovered another Pakistani drone near the Indo-Pak border in Amritsar making it the second such seizure in the span of three days.

The drone was recovered in Mahawa village based on the information given by one of the four 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.

The Special Operations Wing of the Punjab Police is still trying to ascertain whether the drone is among the four that had been indicated in the KZF terrorist’s statement to the police.

The terrorists during the interrogation had revealed that there were four such drones hidden around Punjab’s Tarn Taran and its surrounding areas. The police said the terror group was conspiring to unleash a series of strikes in Punjab and neighbouring states.

Earlier, the police had recovered a half-burnt unmanned vehicle from Tarn Taran on Tuesday. The terrorists burnt the machine after it failed to fly back to Pakistan, revealed sources.

Sources in the Punjab Police revealed that the Pakistani drone had carried out eight ‘sorties’ in 10 days this month to drop the weapons, including satellite phones, on the Indian soil.

A large cache of arms and ammunitions 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 were also seized by Punjab Police.

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.

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.
