The BSF intercepted the movement of the suspected drone near Maboke Village on December 8, 2023, at about 10:10 pm. The BSF troops, as per the laid down drill, immediately reacted and fired on the drone to intercept it.

During the search operation launched by BSF at around 7:25 am, troops recovered a small drone along with one hold and release mechanism from the farming field adjacent to Rohilla Hazi village.

This is not the first instance where attempts have been made to smuggle arms or narcotics into Indian territory from across the border with the help of drones. This has especially been a severe problem in the state of Punjab where frequent smuggling attempts are made with the help of drones by cross-border smugglers.

Vigilant troops of BSF once again recovered the nefarious design of smugglers.
