Second in a Week: Aircraft-Shaped Balloon With Pakistan Airlines Logo Seized in Kashmir

Days after an aircraft-shaped balloon bearing the Pakistan International Airlines logo (PIA) landed in the Sotra Chak village, another such balloon has been recovered by Jammu and Kashmir Police, officials said on Tuesday.

​Speaking to Sputnik, a senior police official said such incidents are raising suspicions that neighbouring Pakistan is possibly trying to spy on its enemy, India.

Last Sunday, a Pakistani drone entered India's territory but it was forced to turn back. India’s paramilitary force spotted it in Punjab's Pathankot district and opened fire. 

Officials in the armed forces have also been warned about Pakistani drones entering Indian territory with the alleged intention of delivering consignments of arms, ammunition and even drugs.

"We have observed that Pakistan has increased its activity along the border in Jammu as it is unable to create any impact in Kashmir, where there is a heavy presence of army and central armed police forces," he said.

Pakistan hasn't commented on the speculation so far.

These suspicious acts have occurred at a time when Pakistan and India have been strictly adhering to all agreements regarding Jammu and Kashmir, including the ceasefire along the border.
