The BSF troops fired at the drone and it finally fell down before it could return. The drone was seized and sent to BSF Headquarters for forensic analysis.

Meanwhile, smuggling of arms and ammunition as well as drugs through drone has been a major concern of the BSF, which is responsible to guard 3,323 km India-Pakistan border. The BSF used to shoot down drones coming from Pakistan and entering into Indian territory and foil the nefarious activities of cross border elements.
