The Border Security Force (BSF) on Monday said that troops have shot down a drone in Punjab’s Ferozepur sector, that came in from Pakistan.
BSF personnel found a small green colored bag attached to the drone, containing four packets in yellow wrapping and one small packet in black wrapping. It is suspected to be contraband.
The gross weight of the contraband items was found to be around 4.17 kgs (with packing material) and 250 gm of black wrapping.
The BSF also said that the suspected flying object was a quadcopter made by DJI Matrice 300 RTX.
In the past too, the BSF has shot down a drone in the Jammu sector, which was carrying arms and ammunition whereas, in the Punjab sector, the flying quadcopters were used to smuggle drugs and narcotics.
