Sixth Airplane-shaped Balloon With 'PIA' Written On It Seized In Jammu & Kashmir

Jammu and Kashmir police found another aircraft-shaped balloon with the letters 'PIA' written on it in the area of Mendhar in Poonch district. Yesterday, (March 29, 2021) a similar airplane-shaped ballon was spotted in the Kanachak area of Jammu. PIA stands for Pakistan International Airlines, and the balloon was painted to look like an airplane, complete with windows and doors. This is the sixth incident of its kind within a month's time. Also, it is the first time when the PIA airline-shaped balloon was found along the Line of Control (LoC). Earlier, (during five such instances) it was found along the International Border.

On March 29, 2021, it was recovered in the Kanachak area of Jammu.
