The Border Security Force on Tuesday recovered 565 grams of heroin airdropped by a Pakistani drone from a field near the International Border in Punjab's Amritsar district.
Border Security Force (BSF) personnel detected the drone during the night between November 20 and 21. Additionally, they observed a noise resembling something being dropped on the ground in Mode village, as told by an official to PTI.
During a search, BSF troops recovered a packet wrapped in yellow tape containing 565 grams of heroin, reportedly and the Pakistani drone returned after dropping the packet.
In a post on X, the BSF said, "In a search operation, based on specific input about drone intrusion, @BSF_Punjab troops seized 565 gms of heroin from the outskirts of the village - Mode, District - Amritsar. The troops swiftly responded to the #drone intrusion, which dropped the contraband before returning back to #Pakistan."
