Pak drones continues to be spotted in Punjab

A suspected Pakistani drone was spotted flying in two villages in the Indian territory along the India-Pakistan border in Hussainiwala area in Punjab late on Tuesday, security officials said. This was the second incident in two days.

Villagers captured pictures of a drone on their mobiles.

Its first sighting was reported in Hazarasingh Wala village at 7.20 p.m. and later in Tendiwala village at 10.10 p.m, an official told IANS.

Earlier, the sighting of a Pakistani drone was observed thrice in the same area on Monday night.

Punjab Police has already launched elaborate investigations to account for the weapons consignments apparently smuggled into India from across the border by the two drones recovered near the India-Pakistan border over the last around one month.

Police teams are also on the job to ascertain the links of the terror groups involved in sending these drones from Pakistan, said a police spokesperson on September 27, clarifying that so far only two such drones had been recovered -- one last month and the second in a burnt condition three days ago in Jhabal town in Tarn Taran district.

Investigations so far suggest that several Pakistan-based terrorist groups were engaged in s1muggling weapons into India since August, post the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir.

Both the recovered drones were apparently sent by different terror groups, linked with the Pakistan ISI, and the State-sponsored Jihadi and pro-Khalistani terrorist outfits working under its command.
