Punjab: Ferozepur villagers spot drones again, claim it crashed nearby


Villagers living close to the international border in Ferozepur have yet again spotted at least two suspected Pakistani drone flying near the Indian territory.

As per eyewitnesses, two drones were seen flying near the border village of Jhuge Hazara Singh Wala in Ferozepur. The villagers, however, told the security forces that drones crashed near the village.

While there has been no official communication in this regard by the security agencies, the police are searching for the drones.

Security forces have been asked to keep a hawk’s eye on such developments after the BSF on Tuesday sighted two high-flying drones along Punjab’s Hussainiwala sector.

This came days after police recovered Pakistani drones used to airdrop arms and ammunition in border areas of Punjab.

BSF had also started sensitising the residents along the border to immediately inform the police or BSF authorities if they spot anything unusual near the zero line.

On Tuesday, BSF personnel sighted the drone four times on the Pakistani side, while once it was seen almost a kilometer inside the Indian territory, a BSF official had said. While going back, the light and sound of the drone went off and it vanished within no time.

In September, two drones were recovered from border areas of Tarn Taran and Amritsar in Punjab.
