Pakistan drone spotted by BSF in Punjab's Dera Baba Nanak

Border Security Force (BSF) jawans spotted another drone in close proximity near the India-Pakistan border at Dera Baba Nanak of Punjab's Gurdaspur district on Thursday, according to sources in the paramilitary force.

The BSF sources told ANI that the drone was observed between 8.30 p.m. to 8.40 p.m on Thursday across the Internation Border (IB) fence.

"The drone returned soon after the BSF troops deployed at the border fired more than two rounds of bullets targeting the object," sources said.

Soon after the incident, a senior BSF official said that an alert was issued and a search operation was conducted near Dera Baba Nanak (DBN) check post.

The flying object had a blinking red and yellow light and was seen flying over at a height of approximately 400 metres above the ground, said the officer, adding "It was spotted by the BSF troops for a few seconds".

The officer stated that the drone intrusion bid foiled by BSF troops was indicative of alertness and swift retaliatory action by the force on a drone intrusion from the Pakistan side.
