The Border Security Force (BSF) has once again foiled Pakistan's nefarious attempt to send drugs. BSF has shot down a drone near the India-Pakistan border in Tarn Taran, Punjab. At the same time, more than 3 kg of heroin brought in has also been recovered. This information has been given by BSF.
A BSF spokesperson said that late on Saturday night, the jawans heard the buzz of a drone entering Indian territory from Pakistan near Kalia village in Punjab's Tarn Taran district. As per the prescribed practice, the troops tried to intercept the suspicious flying object by shooting it. The entire area was immediately cordoned off by the jawans and the police and concerned allied agencies were informed.
