Border Security Force (BSF) on Saturday said that it foiled a drone/UAV intrusion bid from across the LoC amid ceasefire agreement between the two countries.
In a statement issued to a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO), a BSF spokesman said that despite the ceasefire agreement between Pakistan and India, today alert BSF troops in Arnia Sector foiled drones’ intrusion bid by Pakistan on International Border.
“During the early morning hours today, two Drones/UAV were observed entering from Pakistan side and Immediately fired upon by vigilant BSF troops which compelled it to retreat back to Pakistan territory,” the spokesman said.
He said that it is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan Rangers have been regularly violating the international boundary through drone intrusions and trying to drop arms/ammunition in Indian territory but successfully repulsed by BSF troops on Border. It may be recalled that BSF shot down a Pak Hexa-Copter carrying a huge cache of arms/ammunition on 20 June 2020 at BOP Pansar .
“Today’s drone intrusion bid foiled by BSF Jammu troops is indicative of alertness and swift retaliatory action by BSF on a drone intrusion from Pak side. The BSF intelligence branch was receiving inputs about possible use of drones by Pakistan for ferrying arms and ammunition from Pakistan into Indian side. Accordingly the troops are on alert and the border domination was exponentially increased,” the spokesman said. (KNO)
